Hmm, might be possible, but not easy. That might apply to cumulenes too.
One drawback is that to go back from a double bond to a single bond, you go through a triple bond. If the angles change, it will be a nightmare. It is actually possible to rotate a group inside a molecule with the lastest development releases.

I believe that the way to do that might be through a contextual menu entry.

Agreed, but if I decide to draw the triple bond after I draw the chain? Would it be possible to have it change the angles of the already drawn bonds?

I am not found of hybridization. It's just an artifact of a quantum chemistry approximation.
What would be possible would be to draw a new bond at 180° of a triple bond, although if the bonds ends inside a cycle, the molecule might be non-linear (e.g. benzyne).

GChemPaint should recognize sp carbons and draw them as linear.
