InfoPath - Get the current user without writing code

Recently I started working on InfoPath forms in Moss2007. One common item that is needed on each of the forms is the current user. I came accross a method of getting the current user in InfoPath 2007 via the UserProfileService web service. Below is a really good article that provides a step by step example.

If you want to promote the a field to a "Person" in a SharePoint list then you must assign a workflow to promote the value. Seems a little much but this is the only work around I have found some far:
