Please forgive my ignorance on this matter (I don't currently use any of the integrated VS functionality - have been working with embedding the runtime in an existing application), but what is the difference between "IronPython Tools" and "Python Tools for Visual Studio"? I was under the impression this was the same thing?

That sounds like a good idea to me and it should be a pretty simple change.
