Location of bin/obj folders?

I really don't like the default folder structure that VS.NET creates for you when you create a project.  I'd like to configure my projects to contain the following directory structure:

Project Root:
Source - all *.cs
Project - all solution/project files
Output - debug/release bin and obj dirs

I am able to accomplish all of this, except for moving the obj dir.  The bin dir can be changed by altering the "Output path" in the project's properties, but I don't see how to change the location of the obj dir.  This is C# BTW.. I believe this can be done in C++.  Any ideas?

I don't see a C# compiler option to specify this. So have a post-build batch file to delete or move the obj directory?
