Yes, snapping is easier to explain, but it works only for cases that
there's a point exactly at 50% of the gradient line.

The square-box-and-fill model works better with the "object-fit"
property and it's "fill" value. In fact, having a solution based on
the object-fit property, there is the possibility to support yet a few
more methods, like "cover", which is also impossible to implement
using the current features. Also, note that "object-fit: contain" is
equivalent to "45deg" or "135deg".
