Bug report #18293
New node tool is really slow to index for big project with many editable layers

Using a project with transaction groups option activated, I takes several minutes to be able to create the snapping index cache.
I think that we need options to manage the snapping index coverage.
It could be:
- all editable layers
- only active layer
and maybe also
- only snappable layers
That option would suit well into the snapping option panel, together with a default setting in the general option (digitising tab)

What if the transaction groups are not enabled - is it still slow?
Might be useful to try changing the indexing strategy to see if there is a difference - in python console run this:
Also, right now the index preparation is always sequential - running it in parallel for multiple layers may also speed it up significantly.
