Why do the code setting default value for columns with DEFAULT
NOW() clause has to be called from the handler class at all?
I know that it works this way now, but, IMO, this is rather a bug than
a feature. Particularly, this means that correct default values for
such columns are not accessible from BEFORE INSERT trigger as they
should be per SQL standard.
I think that rather than following old approach and making code that
implements it more generic/nicer we should bite the bullet now and
move this code/call to it out of handler, completely, to the different
stage of row processing for INSERT, to some point before execution of
BEFORE INSERT triggers.
I will be happy to provide any assistance with this if needed!
