REST api fto get account info ?
it could be very useful for other software that would want to authenticate against redmine,
to have /my/account.(json|xml) return account information (User.current).
Here's a small patch to provide this.

Sending the user's password hash in the response is not a good idea.
I'm trying to get Redmine adopted by the NY Times and this API would be a critical step. I think a user information API would be very powerful feature:
- Query for account existence
- Ability to create an account stub
- Retrieve core account info -- first, last, email
I'll create a more complex and secure patch based on the above.
