Understand types in a config file

Quite often it is neccessary to enter a fully qualified type into a config file.

Obvious examples include section handlers in the standard app.config file, or object types in a spring.net config file.

Currently there is no type support for these entries.

Here are some requests:

1. In a source file, support "Copy fully qualified type name" when the cursor is on a class to copy the "Namespace.Type, Assembly" style information to the clipboard

2. In a configuration file containing a "Type,Assembly" attribute, attempt to recognise it as a type. Support CtrlClick (CtrlB) goto type declaration

3. In a config file containing an attribute named "type", offer full type support for entering a "Type,Assembly" using intellisense for system types, solution types and project referenced types.

As far as I remember, this feature is planned for 3.0.
