[rt-users] CurrentUserEmail in search - better way instead copying Tickets_Local.pm

I would like to create a search finding all my requested tickets 
without using my hard-coded email-adr.
Therefore, I overlayed Tickets.pm with Tickets_Local.pm, removing the "use ..."
and adding one line of code like described in http://requesttracker.wikia.com/wiki/CurrentUserEmail.

	+ $value = $self->CurrentUser->EmailAddress if $value eq '__CurrentUserEmail__';

Now, it's possible execute a search-query like 
	Requestor.EmailAddress = '__CurrentUserEmail__' AND Status = 'open'

Question: Is there a way not to copy the whole Tickets.pm but just 
the relevant code snippet using callbacks/overaying/.... 

I tried to just copy _parser() method - but perl cannot find 
variables from the base class Tickets.pm like FIELD_METADATA or %dispatch ..

Is there a smoother way to implement this feature?
