For C#/VB.NET, keep solution and project file in same directory

See original GitHub issue

Even though Visual Studio by default creates the .sln file in the root directory and creates a .csproj/.vbproj file in a subdirectory with all the project files, I don’t think this is really necessary.

For example, Amazing (C#) has only four files without a subdirectory; while Acey Ducey (VB.NET) has the unneeded subfolder.

This is implemented via #520.

OK. I’ll work it out, as part of generating a standard template for the C#/VB versions.
