Files in Feature folder not added to manifest.xml

Hi there,

Great tool! This is going to save me a lot of work. I have a question though about adding files to the feature folder.

STSDEV automatically generates TemplateFile elements in manifest.xml for each file I add to the IMG folder. However, it doesn't seem to do this for files I add to my Feature folder. For each file I add to FEATURES\MyFeature I have to manually add an ElementFile to Feature.xml in order to get the file copied to the 12 hive. 

It would seem really handy to me if STSDEV would register the Feature files in the manifest xml as well. Is this omission by design (the Webpart solution generated by STSDEV uses ElementFiles as well), is it a bug, or am I missing something?
