FEATURE: Custom field Type: USER to have a default=ME


When creating a custom field of Type:User it is needed to have a default value of ‘ME’ so that by default the field will be populated with the current user.

We have a custom field if this type for test cases and flagged as a required field. However, a test case may be created and unless a user goes into Edit this field will remain blank. We would like it to be populated by default with the name of the user who created the test case.
