Hi marcus,
i am not very familiar with MSBuild as yet... but have decided to look into 
it asap. Regarding documentation of microsoft.build.* namespaces... you 
might want to have a look at the vs2005 documentation at 
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/library/ms123457(en-us,vs.80).aspx hope that 
helps... let me know if you are interested in pursuing this further, we can 
work out something...
