Is there any documentation on how to create a plugin for a custom versioning scheme?  I've downloaded version 2.2.

Never mind, I figured it out.  In case this helps anybody else, the basic answer is to create a class that derives from BaseIncrementor, which is exported by BuildVersionIncrement.dll.  You can either create your own DLL project that references BuildVersionIncrement.dll, or download the source and add your class(es) to the Sample.Incrementor project in the downloaded solution.

Build your DLL and copy it to Visual Studio addins directory where BuildVersionIncrement.dll gets installed.  In my case, that's C:\Documents and Settings\<userid>\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins
