Resharper 4.5 PowerToys (or docs?)

I fear the answer to this question given the many months and posts of begging by multiple of us in the community it took to get the PowerToys for 4.0, but are there any plans to release these for 4.5? The "look at someone else's plugin" just doesnt help unless you happen to be writing one that does something similar (which it seems my requirements never are), whereas the PowerToys were very focused on a wider range of functionality.

The Resharper API in 4.5 is devastatingly different - combine that with the ever zero documentation for the API and a far too briefly optimistic "migration" page posted back in February and it is a real headache for "part-time" plug-in developers like myself. Clearly some of the plugin authors out there have dedicated much time and effort to get to grips with it. Fair play to them but having seen your API change so drastically through many generations of Resharper it is too time consuming and heartbreaking to start from scratch every time with no examples or docs for the likes of myself.

I'm sure I'm not alone in having numerous ideas for plugins we would like to whip up on top of Resharper - please don't forget us part-timers! Many thanks for your assistance.

A big +1 from over here. I've given up working on my plugin as I've just don't have the time to russian roulette my way to success.

It would be great to have this for 4.5. The cycolmatic complexity one is the one that gets used the most by us (I was on the topic begging for it for version 4.1), but I now have a couple of ideas for some plugins that I would like to write and it would be great to have some recent examples.

Some migration information can be found here: http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/ReSharper+PlugIn+4.0(4.1)+to+4.5+Migration+Guide
Many things were moved around, so "Go to symbol" is your best friend here. PowerToys will be published soon.
