It seems you know me already pretty good :)

No, I do not want to have more options and more special commands for
Thomas' need to kill builds (btw, Lex' joke about film titles was
coool). Don't get me wrong but I don't see this as that important,
usually (!) you want a build to finish and not kill it for whatever
reason. And if so, opening a terminal and type 'killall make' isn't
that hard, I guess.

Or as already said, (ab)use the Execute command and live with the
opened terminal. IMO the opened terminal for the Execute command should
stay open, in any case. That is what it is meant for, Lex already said.

Finally, as also already said, if it is really that important,
implement it as a plugin and request API additions you need.

Just my 2 cents.
