XYZ moves refer to the coordinate system defined by the workpiece, and UVW moves refer to the coordinate system defined by the tool. Chris notes that "I put my 30-60-90 triangle on the table and went to B30. Now the V axis cuts right along it. This is extremely useful."
All this work is in the "w_tool_length" branch of CVS.
