I would like to see an option added to perform a "Differential Execution". So if I have some changes to push to a new environment, I could easily deploy the differences and then only execute those objects.
Currently, the only way to do that is to do a differential deploy, make a note of all the objects deployed and then manually execute each of them in the queue.
Note that I edited my original post as it actually seems to be a bug that I'm working on replicating now and will submit to Support. The post now reflects another suggestion that was at the bottom of the original post, so the comments below may not make sense.
