On a second thought: This would only allow to build individual projects,
so for anything else you'd have to open the project manager again and
add to your buildset what you want to build. Those buildsets then might
also show up in the dropdown, but obviously listing all possible targets
is not an option...
Maybe the dropdown should have an action that activates the buildset
editor, similar to the "Open Run dialog" in eclipse?
You are wise, witty, and wonderful, but you spend too much time reading
this sort of trash.
