support for searching application configuration (app.config) before removing reference

description

Thank you for Reference Assistant.
 
I would like to request the ability for Reference Assistant to search the project's application configuration (app.config) before removing references.
 
For example, my app.config contains the following reference:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
<configSections>
    <section name="loggingConfiguration" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.Configuration.LoggingSettings, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.414.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" requirePermission="true" />
</configSections>
<loggingConfiguration name="" tracingEnabled="true" defaultCategory="General">
    <listeners>
        <add listenerDataType="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.Configuration.CustomTraceListenerData, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.414.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
            type="EntLib5Logging.FormattedConsoleWriterTraceListener, EntLib5Logging"
            name="Console Trace Listener" initializeData="" formatter="Text Formatter" traceOutputOptions="None" />
    </listeners>
...
 
But when I invoke "Remove unused references", EntLib5Logging.dll gets removed because it is not used anywhere else.
 
I would imagine support for web.config would also be included with this task as well.
 
Thank you.
