As requested to discuss it on list rather than on bgo...
It would be quite useful to be able using same snapping options (snapping to
guides, grid, canvas border, active path) across sessions, preferably by
defining defaults via "Edit - Preferences - Image Windows/Appearance" like UI.
I'm not sure which "tab" exactly it could be. Probably inside "Image Windows"
group or after "Default Grid".
