Yes there needs to be an easy way to switch the build directory, but no
a toolbar combobox doesn't work. One can have multiple projects and you
need to be able to switch the builddir for each one. So it needs to be
obvious that a the switch is for a specific project, hence the gui
should be close to the project itself in the project tree.


It's all in the mind, ya know.
