I now agree completely.  My purpose is to migrate Oracle databases to
Posgres, and I had thought that Oracle didn't support CURRENT_DATE,
CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, and so on.  However, I've just learned otherwise. So,
I think the proper migration process for a production database would be
to first change the Oracle DB to use CURRENT_DATE (or some other
standard psuedo column), since that will work properly under both Oracle
and Postgres.
