Auto-Start ASP.NET Applications
It would be great to keep the application running. It's a pain to wait 20s for the app to initialize and then do a few requests to get everything cached everytime the pool is recycled before you can debug your app.
Even if it doesn't use auto start would be nice for the deployment process to at least do an http request to start the app spinning up before moving it to production.
It would be nice to apply IIS 7.5 / .NET 4 Service Auto Start feature
