This indeed sounds interesting but I'm not sure if it's the most powerful way 
to do it.

I'd like the ability to send to rounds of whatever I'd like, say send to 
rounds of multiple of 12 on the page, or send to multiples of 0.5, and not 
just rounding to full integers.

How about we have many "nudging steps" also.

How about "Big nudge" "Medium nudge" and "Small nudge" for normal settings and 
the corresponding Big, Medium and Small "rounding" nudge amounts.

Not sure how it would go with shortcuts but there must be some Alt free in the 
area or something. 

Say, Shift being Big nudge, and Ctrl being Small nudge, and normal with no 
modifier (shift big because it's the highest key of both on the keyboard) 
with Alt as the rounding nudge amounts.

Not sure if it makes sense, how does it sound?
