It works just fine for points and cleaning up topology. I think "not
easy to use for your task" is a more accurate representation. If you
want to pan, you have to end the line, pan, draw another, and then snap
the two together apparently. A pain, but possible.

Note that a lot of those will be for v.digit from GRASS 5, an entirely
different program.

Correct; but again, I would say "improve" rather than "fix". For many 
tasks it is fully adequate.
