Allow variables to control all sections in config files, not just appSettings and connectionString
The ability to control the appSettings and connectionString settings in config files with variables in a deployment project is great stuff, but I want more! :-)
It would be great to be able to control other sections as well.
As it stands, we've ended up with a hybrid solution consisting of variables and config file transforms; ideally, I'd like to be able to stick to one of these methods.
Would be great for us too because we're using an own NameValue section in config. So I wouldn't need so much web transformation files.
Yes please! This is a feature im looking for myself. Too inflexible at the moment.

I've updated the idea header for you.
Thanks for the suggestion, by the way.

Darn it! The header should have read:
"Allow variables to control all sections in config files, not just appSettings and connectionString". Sorry about the typo! (Where's that Edit button?!)
