Automatic build numbering for c/c++ projects
It would be nice to have a feature for automatic build numbering of projects (C/C++) that use *.rc file for file numbering. Currently you need to do it manually by yourself or you need to use pre-build event and call some custom batch script. I think the second option is the most used by many projects. But i believe it would be very helpful to have some kind of standard way for this task in the Visual Studio.

I do this from my TFSBuild based automated build by modifying the .rc file using regular expressions and the auto-generated build number from TFS build.

This can be solved with a plugin, doesn't need attention from Microsoft.
