I spend a lot of time using Input > Create Automatic Numbering  
Object . . .  to create references of the form : Proposition 3.7.9.  
The relevant part of the cell expression is something like


   CounterBox["Title", "foo"],

   CounterBox["Section", "foo"],

   CounterBox["Proposition", "foo"]

Here "foo" is a cell label and "Proposition" is a defined cell style.

I would like a more efficient way to do this. What I have in mind is  
something like a function propref["foo"] which when evaluated in  
place changes to Proposition 3.7.9, or a button, or a palette, or  

Any suggestions of the best way to go about this?
