Is the a plugin for shorter JQLs to search for users in userfields?

I had something in mind like:

currentUser() in (assignee, reporter, watchers)

maybe someone knows of a plugin providing that kind of search...

Of course I could write assignee = currentUser() OR reporter = currentUser() OR watcher = currentUser(), but that is rather long.

I haven't run across anything like this, but if you have a set list of fields that the currenUser() would check against, then you can save that into a filter and just reference the filter.

aka save "assignee = currentUser() OR reporter = currentUser() OR watcher = currentUser()" into a filter. Future JQL searches can simply reference the filter.

Agree! Definetly a very nice idea. I just converted it to an answer and voted it up!

Sadly this was the 3rd up-vote and now the question is now closed:( I was hoping for some more ideas...
