'forward by' when snap to grid is true move one gridspace forward.

               Key: SQ-682
               URL: http://tracker.squeakland.org/browse/SQ-682
           Project: squeakland
        Issue Type: Feature
        Components: etoys
          Reporter: Karl Ramberg

When snap to grid is turned on it would be nice if forward by moved the
player one grid space forward. Like wise for all the height, width turn etc
that they reflected the preference griding and showed the grid values
instead of the pixel values.

Randy, what do you think, would you like to have that for your perimeter 
lessons? Maybe to write a script to calculate the perimeter?
