C# Script window similar to LinqPad
I want to be able to write scripts to try out things that I would normally create a console application for. It should be really easy to reference projects from the solution that I have currently open and all editor features should be enabled, such as refactoring and intelisense.
Ideally after I have written code in a script I would then be able to easily move it into one of my projects.
I love LinqPad.
In case you haven't see it yet, you can download a preview of this very feature in the Microsoft "Roslyn" CTP: http://msdn.microsoft.com/roslyn. Once the CTP is installed into Visual Studio 2010 SP1 (with the Visual Studio 2010 SDK SP1), just select View -> Other Windows -> C# Interactive to access the C# Interactive Window.

This would be very cool and would speed things up a lot especially when prototyping
