Default Auto level - "new" feature for Lightroom 5

I have LR 4, have yet to figure it out...

I was looking at the features of the LR 5 update and came across this, maybe it's just an improved version of what is available in LR 4?

Upright – Perspective Correction

Upright straightens your photos automatically, based on the image content. It looks for straight lines like buildings and horizons, leveling tilted photos and fixing keystone distortion on buildings.

There are 5 options:

Off doesn’t do anything – that’s the default.
Auto is the most intelligent, and the one you’ll use most of the time.
Full tries to fix the whole image, regardless of how extreme the correction.
Level just tries to rotate the photo to level it.
Vertical levels as well as fixes converging verticals.

Great. Now the new level of defense after an unlevel rejection will be:

"BUT LIGHTROOM SAYS IT'S LEVEL!!"

All of my foamer shots are taken out there, in nature. The only thing really level is the ice on a frozen lake. Fortunately, my camera has built in electronic level, at least in the X & Y axis.

That certainly does not hold true for an automobile.

I have found it quite handy. It's not always perfect and when it's not, it's usually way off. The only example I can come up with is when there is really nothing level or straight in the photo.
