ASP.NET Web Site vs Web Application Project types

Today I came across one advantage of Web site projects that has never crossed my mind before.

I was helping a client that did have  source control and were not sure if they have the latest production code on their development environment. Unless you pull and bits and pieces from production server there was no way to get the full latest code that is currently running in Production.

Web site projects come so handy on this case because you only need to worry about one file at a time.
Every page is compiled into it’s own assembly. So for emergency fixes you can still fix just that single file and deploy it without worrying about the full source code.

I thought how big a mess it would have been if there was need to compile into a single assembly and redeploy to their production environment and thought I would share.
