[HOT] How to fully cover a grid square.

I would find useful: 
A grid that doesn't change gps coordinates as I change zoom levels (50ft, 150ft, 300ft, 500ft). 
Something that can be easily turned on and off (keyboard shortcut?)
Lines one pixel wide, very subtle, in a contrasting color, possibly magenta (#FF00FF)). 
Numbers on one edge alphabet on the other. 
similar the printed maps in my car. 
in BoldFace Helvetica or Verdana 13 to 15 pt.
in color making it easy to find an exact place. 
Nothing too fancy. 
In both ID and JSOM. 
Hope this suggestion helps.

Some while back, I suggested writing a JOSM plugin to help make sure one has seen the entire task area.  Without going into details, the idea was to split the task into a grid with cells (subtasks) just slightly smaller than the viewport at the user's chosen zoom level.  When user is satisfied with their work in a subtask, they mark it as done and step to the next (e.g. using the normal navigation keys).  The user could move out of the subtask without marking the task as finished if they want to chase a long feature, then snap back to where the subtask they were working on.

I got sidetracked onto other projects.  One of those will end in two weeks, so there might be a window there,.  Is anyone interested in collaborating on this?  I've worked on Java desktop applications that involve graphics and drawing (for telemedicine and digitization of ultrasound images), but have not done more than peek at JOSM.  The collaboration might just mean nudzing me about it, but if you've worked on a JOSM plugin (hi, Andrew), this would be a good cause.  ;-)
