    we need a stronger snapping tool that could compare attributes when snapping.

    For example, I have some points which are mile markers for highways. Attributes include a highway name, mile marker, and direction (N, S, E, W). I also have some lines which are the highways that include a highway name and direction. It would be nice to have a snapping tool that will snap the point to the closest line that has matching attributes within a maximum distance. Such as, the highway name and direction would need to match. In the picture below, I will have southbound mile markers being snapped to the northbound highway. This stronger snapping tool will also need to work in python scripting.
