Hello, all!

This seemed like something in my league, and something I noticed just 
recently myself as being irritating. I'll give it a whack unless it's 
deemed that this is not the behavior we want. Here's what I see the 
simple flow being:

* Upon receiving a command that changes the view (rather than SETTING 
the view, i.e. not 7key, 1key, or 3key, etc.) set the current view 
coordinates & direction to that of the active camera.
* Switch out of camera mode, stay in perspective mode.

That'd be it! Thoughts?
