I wrote a patch to realize this feature.

Implementation for setting the default value to current date may not be the best way.
Feedback is welcome.

Thanks for your patch. It's a usefull feature but this patch has the side effect that it makes the string "current_date" a valid value for date custom fields. I think we need a different approach.
