UWP: Windows Template Studio

Microsoft is investing in Windows 10 "Universal Windows Platform" (UWP),
but making UWP applications is mostly a manual process, no much help from "wizards".
It is much easier to make old style WinForms apps, or Windows 8 apps.
Even Visual Studio 2017 comes only with "blank template" for UWP.
With  this new open source templates project this may improve.
