I believe MSBuild file will be used as the project file for VS.NET
2005.  Mike of #Develop (forgot his last name), actually suggest I
look into MSBuild.  From what I can gather MSBuild is Microsoft's Ant.
 Although it does have a feature, <ProjectExtensibility> that gets
ignored by MSBuild, that would make this conversion much simpler, but
I don't think MSBuild is going to work on linux anytime soon.  We
might be able to convince NAnt developer to implement that feature in
their next release.
