Create an Auto-Increment numeric data type for Geodatabase fields

    Everyone who creates geodata needs a unique identifier from the simplest point feature class to a complicated Featureclass model incorporating relation tables etc. There is no way to define a field to auto increment. Why? This is one of the most basic rules of data creation. Having to run scripts after editing or using the field calculator after the editing session is unreliable and inefficient. People forget to run the scripts and then objects lose their unique identifier.

    Please get this implemented!
