Make the method returning the current user customizable #694

I'm currently using CanCan in an app where there are accounts instead of users. Unfortunately CanCan assumes that the subject of the authorization is always returned by current_user. My workaround for this is aliasing current_user to current_account which works, but there could be a better way of doing this.
