Scale component about its origin through the user interface

I have created some (dozens to hundreds of) components using Ruby that are scaled about their origin, which is not at an outside corner, but registered to other points in the model.

If I need to make a few copies similarly scaled in the model, I can’t do it manually using the Scale tool without a lot of fiddly repeated applications of Scale then Move (to relocate the shifted origin after scaling) then scale again to an existing endpoint, and even then it’s only approximate.

I’d like an additional option in the Scale tool to Scale about component origin, perhaps by adding an unused modifier key (Alt/Command or Shift aren’t used by the Scale tool AFAIK).
