[Qgis-developer] Snapping tolerance

+1 for renaming current snapping behaviour to "Layer Units" AND adding a 
global snapping-unit option, _perhaps_ as default option.

You very often want to snap in linear units regardless of layer CRS, so 
a possibility for doing that globally would be good.

Maybe if this option is chosen, it calls a subroutine to convert this 
linear unit into "Layer Units" and populates the "Snapping and 
Digitising Option" table for the user, in the layer units.
