As I said, a simply checkbox "output should be filtered for make messages" or
similar. Imo external scripts should have such a feature.
Or we add yet another way to build scripts by defining arbitrary shell commands
and add them as targets. I.e. a context menu entry on folders (not targets)
"New Target" or similar.
One could do that, and the idea is indeed nice. What do the others think?
