Ask questionsAllow multiple preLaunchTasks to be defined
I would like to be able to have the launch.json preLaunchTask be an array of tasks rather than just one. While it is possible to create a compound task, this requires that the compound task also have a label which pollutes the tasks shown when choosing to run a task. Instead, I would like just have the launch config just be able to launch more than one.
In my scenario, I have tasks defined with labels "Watch", and "Dev Server". On debug launch, I want to be able to both ensure the Watch and "Dev Server" tasks have started (if not already running).

@isidorn While I respect the VS Code team's decision as to whether it is reasonable to implement, is it possible to get information about why it was considered "out of scope"? Is this a problem with the request itself, or do resource or schedule constraints simply preclude this from being done? It would be nice to have more of your thoughts about this. Thanks.
