Default pivot to pivot snapping

hey i was wondering if any of you had a method or the mel script for snapping an object to another by matching its pivot point. i know holding v snaps object A to object B's vertice but I want it to snap to the pivot rather than the vertice. i know max can do this easily

thanks,
Dan

You could do this...

1) select object to snap TO and then display>transform display>rotation pivot
2) select the object to be snapped and then just v-snap to the rotation pivot in step one
