I think Web Deployment Projects are important enough to include with the release of Visual Studio 2008 rather than being an add-on.

Any idea if this is included OOB with VS2010?

Thanks for the suggestion. Web Deployment Projects will be available in VS2008 as an out of band download similar to that of VS2005.

I'm not sure I see a good reason to have 20 assemblies with my website rather than a single one. At any rate I would like an option to make just a single assembly for a single website.

See the attached BMP file.

You need to enter *.* and press Enter to view the WDP project file when adding it to a Solution. This is because Visual Studio is unaware of this type of project file.
