Adding actions to the Project view's toolbar Follow

If anyone has a better solution, feel free to share it.
Reflection is a bad practice. You can use it, but I recommend to file a feature request for needed API.
Of course, you're completely right, I realize it's ugly and should be avoided. I do plan to submit a feature request (as I mentioned on Gitter).
