Wish Have "Pre" and "Post" Command line options in "Build Configurations"

When you go into "Build Configurations", it has options for "Package" and "Conditional Symbols".

What would be really cool is if we could specify a "Pre-Compile Command:" and a "Post Compile Command:".

This way I could specify a program or DOS batch file that I want to run *before* B4A compiles a project. And/or specify a program or DOS batch file to run *after* the compiling is done.

For example, I could create a "Post" DOS batch file that would sign the package using an alternate key, or have the resulting APK automatically FTP'd to my deployment location, ect.

Also, the "Pre" compile command could download the latest copies of some dynamic resource files that I need to have the most recent version to be included into the package.

What do you think?
