When projects are converted from VS 2003 to VS 2005, component classes are not automatically split out to have the new designer partial classes (e.g. MyForm.cs and MyForm.Designer.cs).

So, I thought I'd throw together a Visual Studio macro that takes care of this for me...  Note: The macro expects the code view for the class to split to be the active VS document.
