VS Template for WSPBuilder?
I've been pondering about the lack of a more efficent process for developing MOSS/WSS Solutions (I mean a solution to a business probelm and not a wsp) lately, because believe it or not, when your MOSS Solution contains more than just one component, e.g. WebParts, Features, ASPX pages, Workflows etc, there is no Solution template in Visual Studio where you can add all these project types and have them compile to a single wsp.
