I'm here to correct my e-mail.

There is Paste Multiple -- but called Multiple Duplicate under the *Items* 
menu.  (I did Google for it, but didn't know the new term, and I was 
looking under the Edit menu.)

And it does seem that lines kinda-sorta do snap to gridlines on certain 
occasions--but in a manner that I can't seem to figure out in any type of 
pattern.  Plus, the dotted-line drawing when you move lines is *very* 
unpredictable on my screen (Win32).

It's still really very rough, but it's not as bad as I thought it was. 
This might actually be workable!  :)
