Add a reference to multiple projects in the same solution

It would be nice if we had multiple projects in one solution, that we can add a reference to an assembly to multiple projects, in one shot, like whats has been done in NuGet, as you can right click on the solution, and click the menu "Manage NuGet Packages for solution.."

    You already answered your own question: create your own nuget packages instead of compiling all the source code all the time.
    This saves a alot of time linking all the dlls and you can easily choose which version to use if you do major changes (e.g. if you have a lot of applications depending on your dlls and you don't know if the changes work with them).

    It would be fantastic to see this feature implemented in VS and feel that there isn't enough votes on this topic. I've got a large solution with a lot of projects. When I add a new project, it's very time consuming to go through each existing project and reference a new one where needed.
