Multiple/Exclusive checkout based on file types
There is option only for allow multiple checkout for all types of files or not for any type.
I wish that multiple checkout for code files, e.g. .cs, .aspx files but exclusive checkout for project file or configuration files, as automerge of these type of files create often havoc like multiple sections after merge causes build errors OR automerge of .csproj file renders project unloaded & usable. Also difficult for compare what change is causing actual problem in config or csproj file in xml format.
Please look for resolving this minor but important issue that we often face while in big team.

If I'm understanding correctly, we have this feature today. Check out the MSDN article for more details: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms253112(VS.80).aspx
