I just committed support for 'distinct' checking in Jifty::DBI::Record
for both creates and updates with a new test script that now passes
constraint checking for columns marked with 'is distinct'.

If you check Jifty::DBI out from SVN you need at least r1159.

If someone wants AJAX verification of distinct checking then they will
still have to do something like what you were doing, but it should catch
it when you do create()s and set_columns()s on your Jifty::Model::name
(ie: at submit time).

Feedback welcome on the error messages and errnos I choose for return.
