Maybe I'm getting old and lazy ;), but I like Geany to parse the error
from the build and  take me to the line in the source file, so I want to run
all builds
from Geany.  Thats why I'm proposing the changes.

It is very difficult to design a UI in text like this, I'll produce a
prototype and we can see
how it looks and works.  We can always change strings later.
