Get button?

Running some of reD_Fox’s script made me wonder why a “Get” name button is not standard in Blender’s interface where you are required to input data (example, curve modifiers, bone names, lattice names, etc…). You have to manually type in the correct name everytime. Wouldn’t it be faster and more accurate if a “Get” button could be implemented? Click on the object and press “Get” to automatically input the name…
Example script which uses it: (although I can’t make it work on 2.4)

type the first few letters of the object, texture, ect you want and press [tab]

Wow, that’s a new trick. Pretty handy, too. But I still feel that a get button would be faster. Or perhaps a list of names like in the material panel"s up/down arrow button…
