Cannot add child framework support when parent is already added


Is this intended behavior (and if so why?) or is this a bug:

For a given framework type, e.g. "web", if it is already enabled on the project, the user cannot manually add a child of this element later (by right clicking on the module -> "add framework support"). In my case, my plugin creates a new framework type which is a child of "web" and I'd like the ability for the user to be able to manually add this support to a web project.

Please Note: Automatic framework detection does work as I would expect, I'm strictly talking about the manual case where the user clicks on "Add Framework Support".

Currently it's indeed not possible. The reason is that we don't have 'framework' concept in the project configuration, so if user tries to add a child framework of 'Web' to an existing project there is no straightforward way to get e.g. path to a web resources directory in the project (where your framework will probably want to create its files).

Feel free to create a feature request about that in our tracker.
