## Description

In Xamarin Studio, when you are adding a new file there is a Property List template which can be used to create an Info.plist, Entitlements.plist or other .plist file. In Visual Studio, there are only templates for Info.plist and Entitlements.plist files and you can't change the name.  It would be nice to have a template for a generic plist file.

Of course just creating any text file and changing the extension will work, but having the above will make things just a bit easier if someone needs to create an alternate plist file other than Info or Entitlements.
