[PATCH] Give more feedback if/which ways will be joined while drawing

Description

I would like to have more feedback you get when connecting something to something - there is no feedback in advance... My wish would be that e.g. when I create a new street and want to connect it to another street by pointing to that street, the target street would be highlighted if the new street would be connected to it. There are thousands of missing nodes just because people are not aware of the fact that maybe a millimeter mouse move is missing to get the connection happen.

If highlighting would be to difficult, there could also be a textual information about the connections which might be established.

Changing the cursor would be a good idea.

Although the cursor would be a first step, it doesn't solve the problem if there are two ways close to each other as it's unclear to which node/way it will connect.

Supports both changing the cursor as well as highlighting the way/node in a different color. Both can be disabled using in the prefs, but both are enabled by default. May want to re-work icons or change color, though. I did my very best to not choose a common color and get some decent icons, but I'm not very good at it.
