Feature Request - Turn Off Redundant VS options

Ever since ReSharper's first release there has been an option to turn-off
the default VS Intellisense. This was great when Intellisense was really the
only feature that both tools shared. Now that VS 2005 has implemented basic
refactoring, unit testing, code templating or Snippets, and code
reformatting this pattern needs to be extended. ReSharper should give me the
option of disabling all redundant or overlapping features of Visual Studio.

Hello Kevin,

I think this request needs some clarification. What does it mean exactly
to disable e.g. Code Snippets? It you prefer
ReSharper templates, you can just use them and never invoke VS Code Snippets
(actually I don't even know how to
do that). The same seems to be applicable to unit testing and other functionality
you mentioned. Thanks in advance.

Disable them for the same reasons you offer to disable Intellisense - the
redundant features get in the way. Help me reduce the clutter. Disabling
these packages would also probably improve startup time which is a common
criticism of ReSharper.

Kevin,

the equivalence of ReSharper features like Unit Tests and Live Templates
and VS functionality is not as straightforward as it is in the case of IntelliSense,
and simply not using (presumably inferior) VS functionality in favor of ReSharper's
one shouldn't be a big problem (unlike IntelliSense which clearly annoy
if both are enabled simultaneously). Preventing VS packages from loading
may be not possible at all due to dependencies
between VS packages. Also, large startup time of ReSharper is mostly the
problem of ReSharper itself, and I think the best way to address it is to
optimize the startup
which we'll likely do in the bugfix update for 2.0
