How to change highlighted default button in alert

Is there any way to change which button in an alert is the default "live" button which responds to the return key? Escape will work for the cancel button, but I'm not looking to cancel, but rather change the default assumed action of the app's alert box. Tabbing will do it eventually, but when there are several mini menus in the box it travels through them all.

I'm trying to use Automator and Applescripts to create some custom action sequences without using mouse recording, as that wouldn't be necessary if I could just get the default button to change : )

Thanks for any advice.
