While Visual Studio, MSBuild and Xbuild all support pre/post build actions defined in the csproj file, mdtool does not support this syntax and so it is not possible to have a single build which works with xbuild and mdtool.
Not technically true, you can put both MSBuild and MD style pre/post build commands in the file. Though that will cause problems when MD switches to the xbuild engine and runs both commands...
We could probably head this problem off by migrating our pre/post build commands into the PreBuildEvent/PostBuildEvent properties that VS sets and MSBuild respects.
