Attach to process should include application pool information

Whenever I'm attaching to IIS I always have to use appcmd list wp to find out the PID of the w3wp process I actually want to attach to, this is very annoying.
There should be:
- a way to link the web app to IIS without being intrusive (if the website doesn't exist the web app project still loads with a warning)
- a way to display the application pool and website(s) using it in the attach dialog
- filtering

    I agree, this is tedious for server-side web development.

    There is a 'Title' column in the Attach-To-Process dialog that could be used for app pool names. And for executable file names, for other processes that don't have titles.
