I don't think that such ideas should be banned, they should just be
monitored tightly. I agree with the risk of fragmentation and duplication,
but there are valid usecases for build system specific wizards.
And I don't think it applies to qbs only. I'm sure cmake has it's own needs
Just think about new commers for example, they start with point and click,
and then as they learn the underlying system they might choose to edit bs
files manually.
