not neccessarily because you can define your snap layers and snapping 
should only occur with one of those (though if you choose to snap to 
segments there would be an abundance of potential snap points)

I think this would smoothen the workflow. We could file a ticket for 
this. I my case I have many line and point layers to which I can snap 
but I have to scroll a lot to get to a certain polygon layer that I want 
to tick for "avoid intersections". Maybe we could have another column in 
the snapping options dialog with the geometry type in it so we could 
sort on that to have all polygon layers together?
