New parameter type for parameterized builds: JobSelector


      Looking at possibility to create flexible (manual triggerred) regression suites. Our jobs' names follow some naming scheme. Currently I've a special 'regression' job which has two parameters: choice 'primary job' and choice 'pattern of secondary jobs'. When primary job is done, all secondary jobs (name matching the pattern) will be started.

      I cannot define this second parameter as text field, because of possible mistakes in pattern. Choice is not flexible enough.

      I'm thinking about special parameter type similar to what is used in 'view configuration'. It should allow to select the jobs by picking them out or by submitting regular expression, where expression will immediately evaluated and show which jobs will be selected.
