Allow Auto Number Fields to be created on Objects managed in packages

Customization & App Building

Currently, if you attempt to create an auto number field on a object that is part of a package it gives this error:

"Error: Auto number fields cannot be added to a custom object when the custom object has already been uploaded in a Managed - Released package." 

We should have the ability to create Auto Number Fields on objects in that are part of a package.
