Oddities with 'auto-import' in Gradle projects

* Why is auto-import disabled by default when it's so useful for keeping the IDE informed of packages, APIs, javadocs, etc.?
* Why is it so hard to enable auto-import after the Gradle project has been imported to IntelliJ (requiring a manual removal and re-import)?

In the future, can we make it easier to enable auto-import after the fact, and default it to true?

It's disabled for a reason, see https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=59965#c13 .

Not sure I understand the second concern. Do you mean that this checkbox doesn't work for you?
