you can do that; again it will be overwritten by the next installation.
you can create a separate pm for this command and include it with another
module line - i cant recall if i added that in 3.1 or 3.2.

yes, yes, yes.

> cisco-custom;script;rancid -t cisco
> cisco-custom;login;clogin
> cisco-custom;module;ios
> cisco-custom;inloop;ios::inloop
> cisco-custom;command;ios::ShowArchiveConfigDiff;show archive config diff

cisco-custom;command;ios::ShowVersion;show version
cisco-custom;command;ios::etc etc
cisco-custom;command;myios::ShowArchiveConfigDiff;show archive config diff

or if you wanted ShowVersion to do something different; you could create
your own:
cisco-custom;command;myios::ShowVersion;show version
cisco-custom;command;ios::etc etc
