Yes, that would make sense.

Well what I meant is you still have to "hard wire" the keybindings
ATM, thats all the keybinding dialog can handle.

The number of build menu items is fixed at startup so I suppose that
rows in the keybindings dialog can be made for all those, but it might
be confusing having keybindings visible for commands that are not (the
empty commands, no point in being able to keybind them :).  So we have
to hide some of the rows in the keybinding list each time the build
commands are updated, and change the text for the visible ones as
well.  I suppose its all doable, it just needs to be done.
