Identify and Nest Dependent Files in Solution Explorer using Right Click Menu

Identify and Nest Dependent Files in Solution Explorer using Right Click Menu.

Allow us to nest files in solution explorer without having to edit the csproj file. For example, we have 4 files that are breeze.*.js, and I like to nest them as dependent on breeze.js so they show up collapsed in solution explorer.

Currently we edit the csproj file to do this, and we also do it for css and for custom js. Another example:

repositories.js
-- attendee.repository.js
-- session.repository.js
-- speaker.repository.js
-- lookup.repository.js
-- abstract.repository.js

For files like jQuery that have 4 or 5 dependent files this is a huge reduction of friction. For files like bootstrap which may have dozens of files (via nuget package), it is tremendously more helpful.
