Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback. We are actively investigating ways to improve how Visual Studio handles project content. This suggestion falls into that category. Unfortunately, we will not be able to address this feedback for the Visual Studio 2015 release. We will update the community when our plans in this area have gained more clarity.

Dilbert would refer to the many pet extensions in VS as 'resume driven development'
Does it take a $10,000,000+ purchaser of VS development tools to talk to a MS VP to get fixes into VS?Anonymous commented
After 15+ years of Visual Studio since v6.0, I've no time or money to spend on extensions, third party add-ins, custom build steps, extensibility, etc.
I don't add it to our build/deploy/auto-unit test/package cycle if it is not built into VS.
Basis for that is the 1+ man-year I've personally spent fixing/working around/removing such time wasters from the projects I've be on.
Customers purchase business functionality and not cool development tool add-ins
