Resharper support for NAnt builds

Late last year I found that ReSharper has internal support for building NAnt files inside the VS.NET IDE.

Will you be making this fantastic (*currently internal*) tool support for building NAnt files from within VS.NET a public part of a future release?

This really is a fantastic integration idea. We currently have quite complex NAnt scripts for our CruiseControl.NET build process and it would be great to be able to run them from within VS.NET.

Hello James,

NAnt and MSBuild integration will be a part of the ReSharper IDE.
The internal support for NAnt build you're referring to was developed
on the initial stage of the ReSharper project two years ago
as a 'quick and dirty' solution allowing to somehow integrate complex code
generators we use for compiling ReSharper. I'd refrain from characterising
it as fantastic, it only serves for the specific purpose it was intended for.

A tentative plan for ReSharper 2.0 plugin is available at
http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/ReSharper2.0Plan.
Unfortunately, there is no mention of NAnt there.

Hello James,

Really fascinated by your investigation! Internal mode was never meant to
be used outside the team, hence its features including NAnt support are not
very friendly to the user.

Just a few hours during my daily commute of Reflector, backing out most of the xsd and a bit of pinging against your API. I am nearly there.

The UI may be rudimentary, but the NAnt build feature is what I am after.
