Using Nuget with Team Foundation Server

Just a heads up...

Can you use Nuget to get packages if you are using Microsoft Team Foundation Server?  Yes...but you have to do some work arounds so the default answer is NO.  The issue is that when you download packages depending on how workspaces are setup on each developer's machine problems could happen.  At least for me at this point it is better to download what you need from say codeplex and install things dropping a dll in a folder and then adding a reference in your project (with copy local set in properties) to the dll.

I screwed up a project using Nuget without knowing things need to be tweaked.
