PowerShell Tools for Visual Studio

Problem:  I like PowerGUI for my PowerShell IDE but I want to be able to work with my PS files with source control (TFS). 

Initial Hypothesis:  Ideally I want Visual studio to work like PowerGui namely, providing line count, local variables, debugging, colour coding and intelesense.

Resolution:
PowerGui has a plug-in for Visual Studio but it only works on old versions of PowerGui.  I find it not worth the errort for the value the tool adds.

PowerShell Tools for Visual Studio is a VSIX plugin for Visual Studio that appears to meet all my requiremnts.
