Allow timestamp columns to be NOT NULL

Reported by James Le Cuirot | August 27th, 2008 @ 04:17 PM | in 2.x

I gather that nullable columns have a minor performance impact in most databases. ActiveRecord currently hardcodes the timestamp columns to be nullable. Since these are (always?) filled in by ActiveRecord when they are present, shouldn't we at least give the option to make them NOT NULL? I'll write a patch if you agree.
