[Qgis-developer] Setting snapping settings via Python

Is there a way to set the snapping settings for a layer via Python?  I would like to turn on snapping with a specified tolerance automatically when a user begins editing within a plugin.

There is a question on gis.stackexchange, but it hasn't been answered.


QSettings stores some values, but these are the defaults:

    qs = QSettings()

I have also found the canvas.snappingUtils(), but cannot find functions there to enable snapping modes or set tolerances.
