Glad you like it. In our setup the user gets a menu under Preferences
called "My Ticket Rights" that answers a lot of questions about who
can do what.

I plan on extending it so that you can bulk change rights on that
page. 2 minutes ago I opened 10 tabs in firefox to give the same
group permissions on 10 different CFs. In the future it could all
be done with one page.

Also, in our company we don't care who knows about the existence of
a custom field even if the user hasn't been given SeeCustomField,
so in this contrib we replace:

my $cfs = RT::CustomFields->new($session{CurrentUser});


my $cfs = RT::CustomFields->new($RT::SystemUser);

so that a user knows that CFs exist that the user cannot otherwise see.
