I'm fairly sure that there should not be an addon for this feature. If it is a very important thing, then this operator should just be part of Blender. However, I never heard complaints about the current behavior from the animators here, so I do not know if this is all that important...

Note, I wanted to implement similar functionality for the edit mode in the past, but we decided that it was not really worth it. Also it can be a bit confusing when multiple bones/vertices are selected.

@Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) hi, could you ask the animators if they think it's useful and give a response here? It seems it's come up a few times for discussion. If it does not fit in, that's fine. We could give it a run in contrib for feedback and testing.
