EWOCprojects strikes again with the ParEdge addon! It brings construction of support edges, this is inserting of edges parallel with the selected edgeloop / part of edgeloop. It harkens back to this option for loopcuts in 2.49 but now works on all edgeloop selections.
After install it will be in the Mesh addon category and after enabling it will pop up a button in the Mesh Tools panel. Use leftmouse-drag or panel slider to set distance.
