If you could add something to Kentico, what would it be and why?

Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
Ideally, this would be via something like a zip file, containing these classes already in folders matching the page type, so you just drop it at the root level and it puts everything in the right spot, but if necessary it could leverage the same interface as the current Model code generation and we could put things in the right spot ourselves.
It simply shouldn't take as long as it does to go from 'created a page type' to 'can actually view a blank page using that page type'.
