Creates dependent files when not necessary

description

Andy has pointed out a great thing on his blog:
http://www.novolocus.com/2009/05/12/list-definitions-dont-need-their-own-forms/
 
Basically it states that you don't need to actually have the dispform.aspx, newform.aspx etc. if they are not customised...therefore saving on some duplication of files in the 12Hive and in source control!
 
Will need to have a check to see whether they are customised or not. I'm guess it'll be when the list form is ghosted in the site list or not.

This has been partially implemented - SPSource does this for dispform.aspx, newform.aspx and editform.aspx. It doesn't do it yet for views. It also extracts all the *form.aspx files even though they are not required.
