Nested classes

This might sound a silly question, but is it possible to nest a class without
actually including the implementation of that class within the parent class?
If possible, I'd prefer to have the nested class implemented in it's own .cs
file as this makes it easier to navigate my code and reduces the amount of
identation.

Can it be done?

In v2 it can sort of be done thanks to partial classes. Not in
previous versions.

No, I don't believe so.

I had a brief read up of partial classes
(http://www.devx.com/dotnet/Article/22603) and it does seem to be what I'm
after. It's just a shame I can't use them yet :(
