you could use Quantum GIS to digitize within the GRASS database, AFAIK it 
allows what you are looking for. 

BTW: There already exists a wish list for v.digit in the bugtracker (03/2005)

1) Visualization of snapping radius.
2) Snapping to lines
3) Snap to vetices and nodes. 
4) virtually snapping to a background map. 

maybe you can add your wish as well, 
but it seems that the development prefers QGIS as digitizing tool.
