No way should they auto-align like regular redstone does, they player should have complete control over direction VIA crafting.
Even at the expense of maybe using more redstone & whatever material it needs to be constructed, this alone will not only allow much better trap and hidden redstone, and will allow for very compact design if the player controls the redstone junction's direction.
If it auto-aligns then you could never create Parallel redstone wires that don't connect to eachother.
I still vote to make redstone vertically placeable before anything else, since that's my biggest difficulty with the stuff.
Vertical redstone would be a god send, I don't particularly care about digging under the floor to place redstone the only troubles I end up with is having the redstone set up so I can get the switches in the right place above ground, so vertical redstone would be amazing!
Perhaps something like:- = redstone
Would make a redtone tube which can be placed vertically.
This is just great, i hate having to always go to amazing lengths to hide my redstone, and this would make it so easy

Alright I've been thinking. When Life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these! Demand to see Life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am?!I'm the man who's going to burn your house down! With the Lemons! I'm going to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon, that burns your house down!
It is a fantastic idea but we need a second block with the tunnel on 2 faces to hide stepped redstone wiring. Tunnels should be in the shape of a cross. A pushbutton switch placed on an unused face moves and hides the unused tunnel, once hidden a second switch operates normally. Tunnels stacked upon each other allow vertical wiring (eliminates the need for 2 faced notch).
