BizTalkApplication : Enable export of partial/incremental MSI

Dear Sir,
 
I would like to contribute what I think might be a useful improvement for others in the community.
This pertains to the BizTalkApplication Task with the TaskAction="ExportToMsi".
 
The goal is to be able to export a partial list of BizTalk resources from an Application to a Windows Installer Package.
Basically, this can be achieved by specifying an additional Resources ITaskItem[] variable to the Task.
If the list of Resources to export is empty - or not specified, the Task defaults to the actual behaviour.
 
I have uploaded a patch for the source code changes to the Application.cs files - for both releases 3.5.10.0 and 4.0.4.0 - based upon the latest changeset at the time. I have added sample usage in the comments section as well.
 
Hope this helps and will be considered for addition to this great library.
Cheers.
