Allow drone repair on the way to a mission

You can heal yourself on the way to a mission, but you can't repair your drone.

I can understand the reasoning here--healing yourself involves consuming healies that you've already bought earlier, while repairing your drone is something you pay for right then. And it makes sense that you can swallow some pills on the way to that abandoned warehouse, but it would be hard to take your drone to the repair shop at the same time.

But you can heal yourself at the medcenter, whether it's for free (up to level 3) or for diamonds (from level 4 on). So, how is that any different than repairing your drone?

More importantly, it makes plundering annoying. At level 9 (assuming you have enough pills), after a mission, you can keep clicking links and buttons without navigating to a new page until you start the new mission, and then go eat your pills and go away for 10 minutes. At level 10, you have to interrupt that to go to the drone page to repair it, then come back to the mission page. It's twice the effort, twice the chance to screw up and go on a mission unprepared, and twice the hassle.
