Re: [cdt-dev] co-locating CDT's build toolbar actions with the platform's

A usability annoyance in CDT-based products is that the platform's build-all-projects action and CDT's build actions are located far apart in the workbench toolbar ("coolbar", to be precise).
I agree, I think it would be way better to keep build-related icons together.  

Additionally, the platform's icon (file with binary sequence) is very different from CDT's (hammer). The latter is easy to fix; we're just going to replace the icon file in our platform sources.
Which icon do you want to keep? I think CDT icon is better metaphor (even if slightly different style), the platform icon poorly associates with build notion.


The former is simply a matter of tweaking the CDT actionSet extension to reference the platform's File toolbar.

I figured I'd check to see if the CDT community would like this change. The only possible concern I see is that CDT adopters who've been adding to the CDT toolbar would end up having to adjust their action definitions as well, lest they appear on their own.
