Generate DSC from existing servers
For those of us with heavily-configured snowflake servers, it would great if it were possible to generate DSC files from existing builds. This may not be possible in all areas, but perhaps a subset of areas could be supported, with IIS 7.0+ at the top of the list.
This would be hugely beneficial for companies like ours where we are supporting thousands of servers and don't have the time to do this manually.
Nik Charlebois wrote reverse dsc for Sharepoint then the core reverse dsc which could be interesting
I've also seen this which is pretty nice for a hackathon - generates puppet manifests

I have seen this concept implemented in a few individual modules. It comes in pattern of export- or get- commands within the module. It would be great to have wider support for this.
A few that I would love...
