According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/nuget/schema/msbuild-targets#pack-target I should be able to supply /p:IsTool=true to the msbuild pack target and the outputs should therefore be placed in a `tools` directory instead of `lib`. But when I do this, I still get `lib` directory.
1) Clone this project here: https://github.com/xamarin/QualityAssurance/tree/msbuild/Samples/MonoSuite/MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle
2) `msbuild MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle/MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle.csproj /t:restore`
3) `msbuild MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle/MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle.csproj /t:build`
4) `msbuild MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle/MonoSuite.CSharpLib.SdkStyle.csproj /t:pack /p:IsTool=true`
When I inspect the resulting .nupkg the files should be in `tools` folder
When I inspect the resulting .nupkg the files are still in the regular `lib` folder

This is for NuGetizer, which is out of band for msbuild. And likely won't be fixed for 15.2 .
