Order number is randomly generated?

We are running the latest VM (2.0.0-RC-2M) on Joomla 1.7.3. 

The order numbers generated are random hexadecimal numbers such as: 3ddee867.

I realise that there will be future plugins to enable customized order numbers, but can we at least have a way to set it to a simple incremental order number?
I don't care if the number starts at 1 or 1000000, but an incremental numerical order value would be fine for us to use, however the random hexadecimal number is next to useless for us.

If this isn't possible, is there a hack we can make to use the Order_ID instead?

Thanks very much
