This is not a new thing in many other 3d app , just would like to ask in blender 2.5 will be possible something like this:
a custom shortcut menu with predefined options panel:
1.press w (special custom menu)
2.select image/material promt + everything create automatically that you set in options
3. load/select the texture
and if you would like change the other predefined option just click the options button at the right side.
When i create a new material and a texture i used this options about 90% for default.
With this options you can click just 3 times vs. abut 30 times to setup everything again-and again.
