This would be an interesting plugin.  If you really want to have an easier 
time of things you may wish to look at the "Project Manager".  This is the 
new interface (and the one that will be preserved for KDevelop4) so that all 
project managers can be manipulated genericly.  It should support most things 
that the VC project manager supports.  The only thing you will have to 
implement on your end will be the interaction with the C compilers.  VS 
projects are a full build system, while KDevelops project files are nothing 
more than wrappers around the native build system be it QMake or Autotools.  

None the less, this would be interesting because it would at minimum give us a 
VS build manager on linux, as well as a migration path from VS.
