Web Service References in Visual Studio 2005

I have to say there are a lot of things about ASP.NET projects that I really just don't like any more in 2.0.  First, expect that the conversion process from 1.1 to not move your web references to the correct folder, so you will have to readd them all.  Web references are now in the folder App_WebReferences.  What is different is that when you add a web reference, it just creates a new folder with the name of the web reference (it also did this behind the scenes in 1.1).  There are no properties that you can configure like in the past.  To make it even more wierd there is no reference.cs file so somehow it just magically works.  It adds a line to your web.config but since asp.net web projects don't use namespaces any more, be aware that they keys will be different.
