      Description

      Dear Developers,

      Would make sense after getting any default possible value in columns to have INSERT RETURNING syntax , that send back resultset off every columns that do set a default value in a ROW.

      In useful in such cases :

      • to get back an array of auto increment PK values for connectors batch mode
      • to enable ORM to have a real object view of some default values inserted inside records
      • in multi master and Galera to stop using auto-increment for PK in profit of uuid_short
      • to pack protocol roundtrip like last_insert_id

      Oracle allow sequence for this:
      https://oracle-base.com/articles/misc/dml-returning-into-clause
      postgresql
      https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.2/static/sql-insert.html

      MsSQL works for every default like UID
      INSERT INTO table (name)
      OUTPUT Inserted.ID
      VALUES('bob');

      SqlLite

      Thanks in advance
