The way some other 3D apps solve this is by making the object parametric so
you can change settings at any point for it. However if you want any edits
done to it(like in edit mode) you lose those options. Blender only has this
state I guess the first time you add the item.

> When an object is added, it comes with its related options for tweaking as

> I bring back that panel again without having to create a new Sphere again
> to access those settings?
> If not, can the workaround be to provide a 'Pin' option for such object
> options, so that the user can explicitly pin that option never to vanish
> even if one changes View Modes or whatever.
> Its very, very frustrating and time wasting to make lots of tweak with an
> addon like sapling, and mistakenly pressing something or merely even
> scaling or rotating, one needs to start from scratch and make all the
> settings again.
