It seems straightforward to add an item to the toolbox:
- Put a System.ComponentModel.ToolboxItemAttribute on the class.
- Put a System.ComponentModel.CategoryAttribute on the class.
Now you can load the stuff at runtime by going through some dialogs
(the + button in the toolbox). I didn't actually try this, but it
should be that straightforward.
