Powershell function that recursively walks all project items within a project and lets you execute an action on each one

Recurse-Project -Action {param($item) "`"$($item.ProjectItem.Name)`" is a $($item.Type)" }

Hey, why did you change the casing with $item and $Item. I assume in PS that doesn't matter, but it seems odd that you'd do that. ;)
