I don't think so, although it would be cool. The only 'function' that I know of that you can use in a default declaration is the CURRENT_TIMESTAMP function for TIMESTAMP columns, see: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/create-table.html

-->
The DEFAULT clause specifies a default value for a column. With one exception, the default value must be a constant; it cannot be a function or an expression. This means, for example, that you cannot set the default for a date column to be the value of a function such as NOW() or CURRENT_DATE. The exception is that you can specify CURRENT_TIMESTAMP as the default for a TIMESTAMP column. See Section 11.3.1.1, “TIMESTAMP Properties as of MySQL 4.1”.
