most often in a point-and-shoot mode (typically P mode) than using A mode to optimize shots for a lens' characteristics.

While I know Program Mode is technically an automatic mode, it is far more flexible than a pure auto mode that does all the "thinking" for you.

In P Mode, you can change several settings such as Focus and Image Stabilization; Exposure Compensation and Flash Compensation. Heck, as far as I can tell, you can't even change white balance in Full Auto mode. The S100 Auto white balance is very, very good but there are times it really does need to be manually changed.

In P Mode you can use AE Lock, that lets you change the shutter speed and aperture value combination. All these options give the photographer a lot more control than Full Auto.
