    A classic example for Uservoice: It takes MSFT 3 years to show any reaction, which is the just promise to "provide an update soon". About one year later and nothing...

    This is about to implement simple #ifdef in the XAML compiler. No fancy stuff, no macro expansions, just conditional compilation. What's the problem?

    This!! Lots of times when I'm debugging I'll use a standard resource dictionary, but when in Release Mode I want to use a cached (I'm sure you've heard of it) StaticResourceDictionary. This is just not possible as far as I can tell currently, I'm sure there are dozens of other uses for this though!
