There are not enough developers to do this currently. This is one reason
that QGIS is suggested. For those who are able to compile it, it has pretty
good digitizing tools.

However, if someone could "adopt" v.digit, it could be considerably improved
I'm sure. I did a little cosmetic  improvement, but don't have the
C-programming skills to implement the wishes. I'm sure that someone out
there does. It just takes a volunteer.
