I think we might be going a bit too far with all those
complex options, per objects defaults and whatnot.

A simple "Align with View" function (like "Align
Camera to View", but just rotation, not location
change) would probably do the trick AND would be a
more generally useful option (what if the object is
already there and you want to realign it, ...)
Also, like I said earlier, I often use the aligned to
view addition to add and align lamps at the same time,
so a function to realign with view would be equally
useful to realign lamps later: just rotate the view
around and align.
