Newcomer to Orchard looking for best practices advice on how to merge an existing MVC 3 Razor web app into an Orchard web app.

Easiest way to add existing MVC 3 Razor *.cshtml view pages into a new Orchard web app?

Is there a module or command-line tool that automates a bulk import?

Thanks for any links to docs or discussion on these questions.

No tool, but it should be fairly simple: it should just work once you've copied things over into an Orchard module. You can even integrate into the theme by adding a simple Themed attribute to your controller. See http://orchardproject.net/docs/Building-a-hello-world-module.ashx
