> Currently for default value an expression is generated and serialized to 
> store in metastore. It should be improved to rather serialize the default 
> value itself instead of expression and store that in metastore. This will 
> have the following benefits:
> * It will make metastore schema upgrade safe. e.g. if a UDF function name is 
> changed hive wouldn't be able to parse back the expression for this UDF which 
> was serialized in earlier version.
> *  It will make metastore schema for default constraint hive agnostic. Other 
> databases would be able to use the value as it is.
