Adding jars by directory

Has Tracker Request # 9664 been addressed yet? This is where you can specify a directory for adding jars so you do not have to add them one at a time and it automatically synchs when the contents of that directory changes.

BTW, I converted 6 developers to IDEA this week! They were using JBuilder.

Really dying for this feature!

You can shift-click or ctrl-click to highlight multiple jars, no need to do them one at a time.

I've seen this question before, maybe it should be stated in the dialog.

Selecting a directory for jars is still a good thing as jar names may
include version numbers which change over time, depending on how those
jars are sourced, so having to manually go in and remove/readd jars can
be a pain.

I would hope that I am clear enough. Jar's names change, especially when the version numbers change. Is this so incomprehendable?

This should be a simple feature. Please do this.

This is a very useful feature. The webapps already have this
functionality via the WEB-INF/lib directory. It would be nice if it
defaulted to lib being the default lib directory, like src is for source
files.
