Allow per-project natstepfilter files

VS 2015 added the ability to add natvis files to a project. This is great because it allows the natvis files to live near the code and automatically get imported any time the project was included.

It would be great if the natstepfilter files were handled the same way and automatically imported as part of the project.

With the current setup, debugging files (natvis and natstepfilter) are separated since only the natvis files can be part of the project. It would be helpful to be able to have them back in one place again.

    I would benefit from this too. What I would like is to have ability to write library code that understands and uses VS to its fullest extent, including bundling with the library appropriate natvis and natstepfilter files to smooth out debugging experience for users who also use VS as IDE.

    As VS2015 has sailed away and VS 2017 is already shipped we probably will have to wait longer but it shouldn't be such a difficult feature to implement.
