The handling of multiple Android NDKs remains confusing and awkward to use

      We now have the possibility to select an NDK as the default, whereas before it required editing the JSON file. But there's a couple of problems with this, still:

      1. Switching the default NDK changes the NDK used in existing kits. This is super-weird, and disturbs attempts to configure different projects with different NDK versions. It's quite plausible that a particular project needs a particular NDK, and doesn't want to switch to a newer one.
      2. e show the compilers etc. for a particular kit so that they are the compiler for the (currently the default) selected version. These can't be changed, which is again odd; I should be able to change a compiler in an Android kit even if it was configured based on an NDK selection.
      3. All in all, we have a weird limitation of One NDK Only, and it's more dynamically connected to the kits than makes sense, at least to me.

      I would expect to be able to create a kit per NDK. And even if I do that, I would expect to be able to change the individual compilers in such a kit. A "default" NDK selection should affect only new kits I create, not existing kits I already created before.
