Summary

Although I'm not entirely thrilled about doing flow control like this (as an actual action in a build plan), I believe this build step works correctly and there's no fancy replacement mechanism on the immediate horizon, and this didn't send us down a slippery slope of Turing-complete builds encoded without real structure or context. Just kick it out of prototype.

(Other approaches which might be better in the long run are things like "this is a top-level behavior on the build plan itself" and/or "build plans are written in a DSL, not a Javascript UI".)

Test Plan

Added a new build step, saw this as an option in the "Flow Control" section.
