Hi! This is great news for MD!
Here goes mi opinion:

I also think that this is going to be the most requested feature.

This is very interesting, but I noted you didn't mention about

This is great too.

What about creating WebService projects?

I like this two too. And what about l10n+stetic?

I'm trying this addin these days and I am always getting an exception
with the simplest operation: svn update. Should I file a bug or wait
until more stability?

What about the patch that was posted some time ago to be able to
localize this addin with Xslt arguments?

I also think this is a must for a 1.0.

Could it be added to the main release of MD although it's not in SVN?

I suppose that this last one would be the best to attract contributors
to MD, besides users.
Thanks for all the updated info about MD!
