The drag could also be incorporated into this mode, so it can be also
removed. If you drag from a node to another node or to a way, it could
connect them with any of the snap modes, changing the cursor accordingly.

It'd be great to get some feedback.

I like it!. A lot!!. Could this be integrated into standard JOSM, please?

I have found a couple of bugs, however:

1- Click "Add node and connect", Add node, add other node, undo, add a third
node. A way is created from the deleted node.

2.- If two ways are connected with a node, and you connect other node using
the "waysegment intersection" (the cross icon), a duplicate node is created,
instead of reusing the previous node.

Great work!!
