+1; this would be a big improvement for a number of my smaller projects.

Building-before-running should absolutely be the implemented behavior. Off
the top of my head, two build systems I'm familiar with—Buck and Bazel—both
do a build as part of their "run" command. Likewise, having a "run" command
that doesn't build makes it effectively useless—having to build explicitly
first makes the "run" command not much better than just running the
executable in the .build folder directly.
