Where O where have my mouse bindings gone?

You would think that Microsoft would have considered including all of the "Ten
Essential Tools -
Visual Studio Add-Ins Every Developer Should Download Now
"
into Visual Studio 2005. One that I am suffering withdrwal from right
now is the VSMouseBindings powertoy. It allowed me to bind my forward and back buttons
on my Intellimouse explorer to the View.NavigateFroward and View.NavigateBackward
in Visual Studio. Made jumping around in your code as easy as surfing the web.

If anyone knows of a way to get this to happen in VS2005 (aside from coderush) please
let me know. Until then, I will continue my quest.

modeling that is always in sync with your code.

Useful for measuring the cyclomatic code complexity of your members, and flagging
potential areas that need some refactoring.
