Another good feature about the Text Editor is the possibility to create
the events from a control.

When we put the += symbol in front of a event declaration the text
editor should put the all definition and create the event method.
In VS2005 we make TAB+TAB and the text editor write it down for us; the
declaration + event method declaration. 

I don't know if this is hard to implement, but for the 1.0 release will
be a good step for usability.
