Would be cool to have an eclipse like organize imports

Currently, visual studio provides built-in functionality to remove & sort usings (which this add-on use).  When I moved from using eclipse to visual studio, one of the things that I missed the most was Organize Imports (CTRL+Shift+O).  This feature would go through any un-resolved type references in the code and examine at each of them.  If there was only a single possible library/namespace that defines it, it would be added automatically to the usings statements.  If it was an ambiguous reference (provided by more than one namespace/library) it would give you a dialog that would show a list and allow you to select one.

Not sure that this falls under "Code Formatting" which was the purpose of this addin.  I'll give some thought into making another addin to do that.
