Recent Collection Variable Types Should Auto-Populate

Currently when a variable type is selected it stays in the variable type dropdown for some time. For example, If I use a Matches activity and create a variable for the result then the System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match> type is available in the dropdown.

It would be nice if the inner type also appeared in the dropdown list. I often use a For Each activity to loop through a collection. In this case I have to browse for System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match to set the TypeArgument parameter. Studio already knows I just created a variable IEnumerable to hold this type, so it should be able to make this type available in the dropdown list.

hmmm, yah even I have wondered many times for the same,
Lets see
