New Thor OSC: Math formula driven Digital OSC
A real-time formula driven Digital Oscillator with (maybe up to) 4 real-time changeable variables aka modulation hooks (to influence the formula result in real-time).
(though not related to Digital OSC Wave generation, this is just an illustrative picture from Robin Schmidt's Func Shaper)

Right now, we can make a "frozen" version of this suggestion with offline wave calculation/generation (or sampling) and loading it up in a NN-19, or in a NN-XT for a memory hungry version of the above request through "hyper-sampling" (where one tries to generates as much variation samples as possible to simulate the real-time wave modulation possibilities).

This suggestion would allow a CPU vs RAM trade-off.

BTW: Thor could be a 3 OSC "Straightliner" if it had a custom wave loading OSC type.
Existing examples that remind me a lot of what Thor could do with custom waves: Robin Schmidt's Straightliner, Jeremy Evers's Atlantis or some of the available OSCs in KarmaFX Synth Modular

Looks interesting. I was having a go at AnaMark the other day. Don't be fooled by the website and GUI, it's a powerful synth that can do some crazy stuff. No OSX version though...

Oh, I totally forgot about that synth, thanks for reminding me of it!

I usually keep in mind those that are free or that I still follow the development (like the Atlantis) or followed during beta testing (like the KarmaFX Modular Synth or the Straightliner), but now that you mentioned AnaMark, I think I played a bit with the demo a while back :)

EDIT: oh, and this MathOSC would allow us to easily make those Phase Modulation'able AlphaJuno Square/Saws you were talking about ;)
