Add ApplicationPool info in "Attach to Process" window for w3wp processes
For web developers, it would be of great help if the Attach to Process window showed also the associated application pools of w3wp processes - this would end a lot of PID-guessing or external scripts to be run and hence save valuable development time.

From customer: On the 'Attach to process' dialog, can we add the command line of a process? For example, it is always the case that when I want to debug w3wp.exe I need to look at task manager to find which one of them is running the appPool that I want to debug, then I need to switch back to VS to select the process. If VS were to show the command line (or the apppool name, in the case of w3wp) then I would not need to switch to task manager. And that would have to work for remote debugging too, since that's what I usually do. :-)
For SharePoint developer it will be great to see the Command Line - in the command-line the -ap argument gives you the information. A permanent Filter will be great like: Process equal "w3wp.exe" and CommandLine contains "SharePoint - 80"
