RE: [cdt-dev] Suggested change to String option command generation.

Regarding round-trip editing and Visual Studio.  Visual C++ used to support that, but hasn't since Visual Studio .NET.  I don't know if they gave it up because they didn't think it was used by many people, or because it was "too hard".  Visual C++ still does display the entire command line and has an edit box for "Additional Options".

This is a great idea, especially the round-trip editing which is very 
nice to have.  I believe MS Visual Studio does this as well...
