I would agree, that Blender is no (2D-) CAD tool and should not be  
one in the future.
You call Blender a "realism and animation tool". Indeed, I see  
Blender also in that
category. For me that means also, that Blender should have some  
better features
when it goes to do "realistic" modelling with accurate dimensions and  
stuff like this.
Therefore I asked for better snapping and measuring features in  
Blender, what is not
synonymous with CAD. It is just a verly helpful feature - also in  
So I am glad to see, that some of this was already realized by Martin  
Poirer and will
be part of 2.43. Hopefully Martin also can code the snapping between  
objects for
a further release of Blender.
