SSIS Exporting all views meeting certain naming criteria

I am just getting started with SSIS, so if this question has too large a scope, just say so, but please be gentle :)

I have a SQL Server 2005 database that has ~25 views that must be exported to flat files on a daily basis.  All of these views have names like dbo.vw_Extract_%, and every view with such a name must be exported.

Is it possible to do something like this?
Get the set of all views meeting that naming convention
Loop through this set
At each stop in the loop, modify the data source and destination in a Data Flow task so that the source is the view and the destination is a text file named after the view

If it is possible, is it feasible to do, or am I better off simply setting up individual tasks for each view?  If it is feasible, can you point me in the right direction?
