This could also work.

If, when an object was initially placed on the workspace with the
mouse, it could only be positioned at these intervals, that would
solve the problem for me in practice -- because I would never get an
object positioned in between the intervals unless I put it there on

Then, since all objects would end up on the same "grid" of numbers
when initially placed, moving them around with arrows (assuming that
the interval by which the arrows jumped was the same, or compatible)
would work better; they could be aligned perfectly with just the arrow
