Add "increment", "promote"

Issue #2 wontfix

Being able to have the system automatically generate the "next" version in the sequence would eliminate human error and allow automatic generation of "next" version numbers for automatic release mechanism.

Promote would allow automatic promotion from a dev to release candidate state, for example.

I didn't see anything about this in the project, maybe I just missed it but I think this would go a long way towards being able to quickly move a project along automatically without having to think too hard about "what the heck is the new version number supposed to be" with all the opportunity for error that introduces.
