[snip] Not true. Triggers are in the SQL specification. They are a legitimate feature with specified expected behaviour. A hack is only implementing function returns as default field values on timestamps, rather than handling all field types in a unified way and allowing them to be set to the return value of a function by default. [/snip] I am aware that triggers are part of the SQL spec, I have been patiently waiting for MySQL to add this feature. What I meant by hack is the fact that you first have to create a function and then call it.
