SharePoint 2010 Generic Solution Validator

Sandboxed Solutions are not a very practical way of  testing solutions in production.  It opens up a world of bad things to happen.  That being said, there are still some good things that can come from them. 

The blocking solution provided in Central Administration is a complete joke, it won't help you for governing sandboxed solution deployment AT ALL.  However, I have built a tool that will solve many of the deployment issues with Sandboxed Solutions.  I call it the Generic Solution Validator.  It is scoped to a Site Collection level and allows you to ALLOW or BLOCK solutions based on various properties.  Properties much more valuable than the SCA provides.

I have posted the Generic Solution Validator to codeplex.
