For now think of it as a "bonus shortcut". You get 2 shortcuts for the price of 1.

This should make it twice as fast to do an extrude, right? ;)

I think the difficult part would be to figure out a good rotation for it automatically.

Just moving something on to the other block should work pretty well already, since if you grab a block near the endpoint of an edge, it should snap on to it and allow you to drop it on the endpoint of a different block. But then you want it to automatically rotate? Hmmm....

You could maybe build a Roman aqueduct with some of those pieces.

Yes that is the challenge a 3 matrix rotation + Move :)

You don't know Muqarnas ? Mine are free adaptation of it :)
So a Roman aqueduct will be an historical transfiguration scaling :)

Something can help the process :)
3 clicks on a face's object One (a plan defined), 3 clicks for the object Two
Surely more easy to speak than to code :)

Yes, something where you specify some more reference points could work. I'm going to do some more transform tools such as array in the beta after the next one and I can try to do some orientation tools like this as well.
