How to automatically add a link to the Tool Panel

In my bb-manifest.xml I can define an application link of type user_tool. After installing the building block, I can go to Sysadmin > Tabs and Modules > Tool Panel > Add Tool and add my tool link to the Tools panel under My Blackboard. However, this is a manual step after installing the building block.

 

Is there a way, within the building block code, either via the bb-manifest or some other method within the b2 code, to make it so my tool link is automatically added to the My Blackboard Tool panel? Or is this a necessarily a manual post-install step?
