In non-distributed build, not selecting a build environment means it
will use the "default"  environment, whatever Continuum is running in.

That doesn't seem to make sense in a distributed environment, since
nothing builds on the master where you are pressing the buttons.

Therefore, I think selection of a build environment should be
mandatory in distributed builds.

Any arguments to the contrary?

[This decision will have effects on the scheduled/forced build
features as well as configuration and UI.]
