WordPress permalinks settings page should work with IIS 7.0 URL Rewrite Module

WordPress is able to determine if it is running on Apache and then it offers "Pretty Permalink" options and also auto-generates mod_rewrite rules necessary to support pretty permalinks. However, when WordPress is running on IIS then WordPress always uses "Almost pretty permalinks" with index.php in the URL.
Now, that IIS has a built-in support for URL rewriting, it would be benefitical for WordPress users if WordPress offered "Pretty Permalinks" option when running on IIS 7.0 with url rewriter installed. Also WordPress can auto-generate IIS rewrite rules necessary to support "Pretty Permalinks". This capability will greatly simplify the permalink configuration task for users who host WordPress on IIS.
I already have a patch ready for this enhancement. See attached file for an example how it works.
