I see: at first glance, I misunderstood your suggestion, so I didn't get 
it correctly.

Indeed it works.

Is there actually any difference at all, with regards to my aim (i.e., 
just draw a line through two points which extends beyond the two 
points), between scale and stretch?

Because even if both this workarounds work, the solution proposed by 
Otfried looks more appropriate for the theory.
