Write to the Plug-in Trace Log from assemblies outside SandBox


Using the ITracingService only works for plug-ins registered in SandBox.

Since this service is so much better/easier to use than e.g. logging to file on the server, this should be enabled also when using plug-ins not registered in isolation.

Auto Number Format is not exported in solutions


The use of Auto Number Format is almost entirely useless this part of the metadata is not included in the exported solution files, and that appears to be the case.
