[HOT] How to fully cover a grid square.

Like John & Tom, in JOSM I set the scale bar to 30m, then use Ctrl-Up and
Ctrl-Down to move systematically down & up columns. After zooming in to
work on an area use use "zoom to previous" (8 key) multiple times to get
back to my 30m scale, then continue up or down the column.

But a grid background at 30m scale that fits my monitor would be sweet.
