I have developed a plugin called "redmine_custom_field_hints" which seems that it may lend itself to the core as a nice feature.

While there is the option to specify a default value for custom options, there is no way to provide a static "hint" which disappears when the user focuses the input and reappears if the input is empty when blurred.

This module only applies to issue custom fields; however, it can easily be expanded to all other custom field types. It will only work with "string", "text", and "date" input types.

This feature "push" was requested by cforce
