Build Times

I noticed that build times are emitted during build for different assemblies. However, it is sort of difficult to see which assembly is being built and what times are associated with which project. Conversely, consider the approach of this nifty extension I just installed:

It creates a new output window "Build monitor" and you get great read outs of build times, such as the following as an example:

 - 00h 00m 00s 703ms     -- DragonSpark.Types --
 - 00h 00m 01s 878ms    -- DragonSpark.Types.Windows --
 - 00h 00m 02s 529ms    -- DragonSpark --
 - 00h 00m 00s 565ms    -- DragonSpark.Client --
 - 00h 00m 02s 527ms    -- DragonSpark.Windows --
 - 00h 00m 02s 789ms    -- DevelopersWin.VoteReporter.Testing --
 - 00h 00m 03s 182ms    -- DragonSpark.Testing.Framework --
 - 00h 00m 02s 390ms    -- DragonSpark.Testing.Objects --
 - 00h 00m 05s 644ms    -- DevelopersWin.VoteReporter --
 - 00h 00m 02s 338ms    -- DevelopersWin.VoteReporter.Configuration.Common --
 - 00h 00m 05s 839ms    -- DragonSpark.Testing --
 - 00h 00m 06s 049ms    -- DragonSpark.Windows.Testing --
 - 00h 00m 03s 655ms    -- DevelopersWin.VoteReporter.Configuration.Development --
 - 00h 00m 02s 678ms    -- DevelopersWin.VoteReporter.Application --
[4] Time Elapsed: 00h 00m 20s 742ms         Session build time: 00h 00m 25s 082ms

It would be super duper awesome if PostSharp integrated with this and/or implemented a corresponding equivalent for showing build times, as well as displaying the % of the overall time of the build process that PostSharp is responsible for each build.

I wanted to throw this out here first to see if there is a better way to get the numbers I am looking for, otherwise, please confirm that there is/isn't and I will make a UserVoice for it.

Thank you,
