Constant throttle control

Obviously, cruise control has it's disadvantages: being a constant speed control, it pours gas into the engine on ascents. But is there such a thing as a constant throttle control? Perhaps with a back up speed control function (that is, it will not allow you to drop more than 10mph below your original set speed)? I'm still working on keeping a steady foot...

A different question: my 02 corolla has the VVT engine. Can it do lean burn?
