user.js for Bugzilla

Is the following idea dumb or brilliant? :-)

What if Bugzilla (perhaps via an extension initially) had a textbox in
which users could write JS, and it would be loaded on all page loads?
Sort of like a cross-browser, site-specific Greasemonkey. People could
then share "recipes" (functions) for useful additions. For example, the
Bugzilla team could have a recipe which automatically set the Target
Milestone of a bug to the current milestone when resolving a bug as
FIXED, thereby saving LpSolit a job ;-) We could even provide a little
library help to make common tasks easier, like providing the ability to
register callbacks for events like "submitted bug change".
