I would find it useful if there was at least an option for snapping to
round number positions.  I find it very irritating when I'm trying to
nudge something into position, and I'd like it to end up on an exact
number, but the starting position is wherever I dragged it by hand
(which is very unlikely to be a round number), so the nudging bumps it
to a non-round number, and I have to enter in a number manually.

I know that you can snap things to guides, thus getting different
boxes to line up perfectly, but you have to position the guide in the
first place.  In practice I don't think it matters a lot whether boxes
are positioned at 75mm or 75.19mm on different pages, so it's not a
huge problem.  But the snapping would be a nice feature.
