To be honest I never expected the software to be used in any commercial way, the main reason I limited the license to non commercial is to prevent all the extra responsibilities that come with actually selling software. This software is mend for hobby use, and the making of it is mostly my own hobby (and partly a good excuse to research some new software techniques etc).

I know this is not really an yes/no answer but I'm not ready to offer an alternative for this as yet. I have to do some research on licenses etc first, I might change the license to something wider (while remaining free/donation based) in the future.

As for the snapping, in the current stable 1.1 and upcoming 1.2 versions this is not available. You have to position stuff using the linear grid. The whole placement approach is very similar to MLCad, but it also offers some additional tools (perspective editing, relative grid, nested editing (1.2)) which make things a lot easier (IMHO).

The 1.3 version (which I'm hoping to start on in a month or two) will introduce auto part based snapping as it's main new feature. I'm targeting an public alpha or beta of 1.3 for release in December (although that might be a bit enthusiastic).
