Add multiple watchers at once and add any redmine user as a watcher
patch for redmine 1.0.1:
1. can add multiple watchers in one step;
2. can add any redmine user as watcher, just type to filter.

I would strongly vote for this. We use Redmine internally at my company as our support tracker, and only being able to add watchers from current project members is a significant inconvenience. If a stakeholder isn't CC'd on the initial report email, I have to add them to the project, add them as a watcher and then remove them from the project again.

This would be important for adopting Redmine in our company. We're just introducing it as a central place to store ideas & suggestions (as well as real project stuff like bugs,features); and this could be a more open way to involve people than fully dragging them in. I would really like even to add emails that are not Redmine users yet, somewhat like RT does.
Until this happens, we have to use other systems, email, spreadsheets, etc.. causing confusion and waste of time.
So, is there a plan to add this patch? Any help needed? I'd like to invest some time (e.g learning how to contribute, writing tests), in case it would move this forward.
