Best Practices Analyzer for SQL Server 2005

I’ve seen a few posts in forums and newsgroups requesting Best Practices Analyzer support for SQL Server 2005.  Good news… we just started developing a new version that will work with SQL Server 2005!  If you aren’t familiar with this type of utility, check out Best Practices Analyzer Tool for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 1.0 or Microsoft Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer Tool v2.5.

It is very early in the development cycle and we’d like to hear your thoughts on the following questions:

1) Is a Best Practices Analyzer tool something that you feel is important for SQL Server 2005?
2) What versions of SQL Server should this support? (SQL Server 2005 only, SQL Server 2000+)
3) What components should this support? (SQL Server Engine, Analysis Services, Reporting Services, Notification Services, Integration Services)
4) What features would you like to see in it?

I'll post the results of our plans once things become clearer.

Thanks,
-Paul
