Prompt the user the first time that you need to do this and you could make a checkbox that sets the default action as whatever they click on (or just force them to setup the defaults then). In my opinion that may be the most user friendly, least anti-productive, and the most logical way to do this.

    Sounds good. It can be set in the prefs, and if it isn't when the issue
    comes up, that's when the dialog comes up. Personally I have no
    objection. Some end-users (the less intelligent ones we always find
    ourselves catering to) might not like this. But with this we can at
    least change the behaviour later if it turns out not to stand up well in
    the real world.

    Make sure that whatever they click, it only applies to that document
    unless they check the box for 'make this the default action', in which
    case it gets set as a pref.
