The one which is the closest to the mouse pointer. At least this is what I would expect. Or that this can be turned ON/OFF somewhere. Because right now it is really hard to use snapping with the paths that have many nodes close to each other.

Yes, it did get lost. I removed it because it was no longer functioning
properly. I might just as well create something similar again, but I'm
not sure how it should work. Given an object with lots of nodes, which
node should snap to the grid? If all nodes were already aligned to the
grid when copying, then while pasting snapping any node to the grid will
do. But this will not be true in general and there will be nodes both
on- and off-grid. Besides, we can now have multiple grids
simultaneously, which one should we use?

If we know where the clipboard data was originally located (I don't know
if that information is stored), then we might paste at a multiple of the
grid pitch (strictly spoken: that is not snapping, but it will achieve
what you're looking for).

Comments anyone?
