[Feature request] Package creation automation from within VS

As a NuGet user I want to be able to package our own dependencies, so that stable libraries to which our projects depend on can be packaged and then referenced in our applications.

I'd like to have an addin, which:

1) on right-click of a project (library) figures out[1] what the outputs of the library project are (convention over configuration, but configurable if possible[1]), and then creates automatically a package.nuspec file and adds it to the project.

    [1] like the VS deployment project does

2) on right-click of a .nuspec file offers me the "Package" (& optionally "Package to..." (asking for output directory)) menu

3) automatically creates the package during build (I don't care how the addin does it, post-build step generated by the addin is good enough)
