Custom Addons - field type of user group?

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I've created various custom addons for clients now and am working on one just now which requires them to enter a Joomla User Group but they have to type this in manually and it must precisely match the name of the group under Users>Groups.

I've noticed there are field types for "article" (which provides a list of Joomla articles) and "category "which provides a list of Joomla categories) so was wondering if there happened to be a field type of "user groups" which could provide a select list of existing user groups from the site they could pick from?

If not is it possible for me to add in some db code to the custom addon (presuming the admin.php file) which will create and supply a list for them to choose from?
