Is it possible to execute NuGet inside an empty solution; then NuGet will add multiple project to the empty solution?

Currently, NuGet never creates projects, but only add things to an existing project.  Conceivably, we could go in that direction at some point, though we would need to figure out exactly what that means when it comes to the semantic of what a package is, and how it relates to VS project templates.

Note that technically, you can do all kind of things today by using a powershell script to drive the DTE object model, which can be used to create projects.  But that's not really a feature of NuGet proper, it's just VS programmability.

You can put together packages like this using the solution factory package http://www.lostechies.com/blogs/hex/archive/2010/10/07/using-solution-factory-nupack-to-create-opinionated-visual-studio-solutions.aspx

Oh yes, that's a very cool approach.
