korby just reminded me of a tool that is on codeplex. well they released v1 of vscmdshell -- a simple add-in that has a dockable window of a command shell (cmd.exe or windows powershell) within your visual studio instance.
i constantly find myself needing a shell while working in vs and this will work out great.
hmm...now can it be modified to run by default in elevated mode for vista?
