How to automatically scale/translate one object to bounding box of another?

Is anyone aware of blender functionality, or a script, to scale and translate one object to fit nicely around another?  This would come in handy when fitting 1 object neatly around another object.  i.e. You can quickly create and position a perfectly sized lattice to go around the object you want to deform without having to manually scale/translate the lattice all over the place.

  • Partially answering my own question in case others stumble here:  Blender 2.79 introduced a new, in-box, add-on with a variety of nice features.  One of which allows a 1-click solution to create a perfectly fitting lattice (with the modifier setup) for a selected object.

    It's called "Add Advanced Objects".  Shift-A --> Block Tools --> Easy Lattice
