No, it just means you need to either use the scripting extension and
write a few lines in your preferred scripting language, or if you don't
like scripting or simply want more precise control, make a special task
to do this. The project I work on does something similar and it works
fine, for example:

In this case I would just as happily hardcode the list and keep it
simple, except it can change depending on which project configuration is
in use so it must be dynamic.
