I think the build status should be a bit more visible too. I often
hear complaints about that the builds are not visible enough.

Personally I work with QtC long enough that I automatically look at
the right place.

So making it a bit more discoverable is probably a good idea.
I like the build indicator in the project view but that one could
of course be hidden..

Maybe some sort of overlay popup that is more visible?
