While we can launch the AVD Manager today from XS and VS, we can't launch the Android Debug Monitor. We have to go find the SDK path and launch monitor from there. 

it would be super nice to be able to launch that from vs and xs.

I imagine VS has "more" resources to work on this than XS, so assign to VS first. :-)

Well, as Bryan mentioned we need some SDK path for ddms first.

VSX had added it some cycle ago.

Menu path: "Tools\Android\Android Device Monitor..."
