SPMetal Extender CodePlex project

I have release a project on codeplex, SPMetal Extender to be able to use additional field types.  Fields in lists can be extended using partial classes.  The project provides a Visual Studio plug-in vsix that generates Linq to sharePoint code for unsupport list fields such as publishing fields.  Additionally the vsix deploys a new template showing how to add 4 additionaly properties to SPMetal.  The Item template is guidance and needs to be adjusted by the developer after it is created.
