Build Number Autogenerator

It would be cool to have a feature that would let me autogenerate a build number for new cases.  We use a date-based naming scheme, so that number would be easy to calculate, but I can see people hooking up to databases and the like to look that stuff up.

Here's what I had in mind:
In the project settings, allow me to specify a vbscript file (or whatever you like... seemed natural since you're using asp) and a function name, that returns a build number to be set in the build field for new cases.

I guess what  I'm really asking for allowing plugins. :)

Since we give you the ASP source it would be an easy change (you would do this in CBug.asp).
