I think i can do this within rewriterHandle.c:build_column_default
immediatly after the first try i can ask if expr == NULL and if is it
a view if so my code start looking for defaults on base tables maybe
using something like the parse_relation.c:colNameToVar function to
identify the column. there is a better way to do it? also the
ParseState parameter is extensively used in the colNameToVar function
but i can't find what is it.
