Re: [cdt-dev] Creating tool options programatically

This is definitely one area I want to enhance with a new rev of the build
model. There are limits to what you can do with the dynamicElementProvider,
for whatever reason. I'd like to be able to express my entire tool chain
using Java. That needs to be made easier.

We are also in the position of wanting to populate several parts of the toolchain using dynamically provided information (such as chip type, development boards, etc.). Currently we're experimenting with generating XML snippets we can paste into the plugin definition; a clearly inferior solution.

Using a DSL to define a toolchain sounds very interesting!

(We're also having serious issues with enablements https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=273822 which is really blocking our toolchain development effort at this time, so if anyone has a clue, please let us know.)
