The default implementation will return auto as null if propName is null, indicating that there is no default automation object. If propName is non-null, it will walk the metadata attributes searching for an options page that has a name of the format: <Category>.<Name>. If the options page has this format and indicates that it supports automation, its automation object will be returned.
