Go to declaration and "metadata view"

Is it possible to use the same metadata view that VS.NET 2005's "Go to
definition" uses for primitive/compiled types?

I prefer to use Resharper's command over the built-in VS.NET one (more
reliable in general), but one difference is that VS.NET will extract a
header-type definition from the class metadata for compiled types and
display that instead of jumping to the object explorer. Not sure if
this is available through the VS.NET embedding API, but it certainly
would be a "nice to have".

Hello Matthew,

we actually prefer the way Goto Declaration currently works for compiled
types.
We find extracted metadata views rather ugly and not as convenient as
the Object Browser. But you can put a request into the tracker.
