key command to insert automation node at SPL

There needs to be a command (which should be tied to a key command) to add an automation node point at the Song Position Line (SPL). I am desperate for this capability. I'm weary of adding nodes and having to reposition them by zooming in or opening the Automation Event List (also a cluttered mess if you use it to edit automated events; I wish it should immediately show what node you have just created). It's such a time waster not being able to create nodes at precise locations.
