Support LinkResource in Visual Studio 11
When a managed assembly depends on unmanaged DLLs it always a good ideia to set them as linked resources. It has two BIG advantages:
1. In VisualStudio, when you add a reference to the managed assembly, the unmanaged DLLs are automatically copied to the output path.
2. When the managed assembly is added to the GAC, the unmanaged DLLs are automatically copied to the same folder.
It would be awesome if you added a LinkResource option to the "Build Action" drop down.
It used to be possible to do this in VS2008 by editing the .target files but I never managed to do it under VS2010. It made my build process a LOT more complicated... :-(

I'm very disappointed that RC still doesn't have the LinkResource build action.
