Done, in r936 -- though it takes at least DBIx::DBSchema 0.29.  You can
now say:

column created_on =>
    label is 'Date this test was created',
    type is 'timestamp',
    default is literal 'now()';

I was considering the option of:
    default is 'now()', literally;

..but it seemed a bit *too* casual. ;>
