I think that is wasting of time.
Because format of Microsoft sln, csproj, vbproj files is totally
different in the latest Visual Studio 2005. And is based on new
Microsoft tool called msbuild (Microsoft clone of ant, nant, . ..).
My suggestion is to focus on implementation this tool I ignore these
"obsolete" formats. Especially when this tool is part of .NET 2.0 and
became more and more important for us. We can be compatible with
VS2002,VS2003 simply with the of Microsoft migration tool included in
Maybe someone have started implementation, but I am not sure.
