Alignment is a raster-ism. The region not only specifes the edges but also
the grid cell size. The grid-cell size implies a grid that runs along the
edges of the cells. Aligning the resulting region to the current region means
that the grid postin and spacing will not be changed. The edges will only
will be reset to the nearest grid line.
