 IDE Toolbox support for custom wrapped ActiveX controls

using the System.Windows.Forms.AxHost class. I am manually inheriting

This approach works, but I am not able to cause the .NET IDE to
recognize that my assembly contains valid controls, and to add them
the IDE's Toolbox using the "Customize Toolbox" dialog.
Will this be supported in the first release?
Is there any way to work around this? I do want my clients to able to
just drag my controls onto forms, and not have to manually modify the
"Windows Form Designer generated code".

I am using Beta 2.

Thank you
