Is anyone using MSBuild with hundreds of projects within a single
solution? Or preferably can it "unscramble" dependencies across
hundreds of projects without a solution file, using a combination of
project and file assembly references, and perform a clean build in the
true dependency order?

(BTW, I am looking on the MSDN, but I think it would take quite a bit of
time to follow the concepts described there..)
