Common MSBuild properties and items with Directory.Build.props

To be honest, I never really liked MSBuild until recently. The project files generated by Visual Studio were a mess, most of their content was redundant, you had to unload the projects to edit them, it was poorly documented… But with the advent of .NET Core and the new “SDK-style” projects, it's become much, much better. MSBuild 15 introduced a pretty cool feature: implicit imports (I don't know if it's the official name, but I'll use it anyway).
