Wanted: Easy way to set multiple breakpoints in VS 2005

I am tracing through some legacy code where a certain class has about 20 different constructors. I would like some way where I can tell VS.NET 2005 to set a breakpoint on each of the constructors.

Likewise, given the name of a method, I would like a way to set a breakpoint at the entry to all of the variants of the method. For instance, if I have a method called GetValue(), and we have a large number of polymophic methods such as

void GetValue(ref bool b)
void GetValue(ref int i)
void GetValue(ref double d)
void GetValue(ref string s)

there should be a way to set a breakpoint at the entry point to each one the GetValue() methods with one one right-click of the mouse.

Sounds like a possible enhancement for Resharper? Or maybe, someone has written a VS macro to do this?
