For a DateField, if auto_now is enabled, a datetime value ( is inserted - which will make some queries more complicated.

The attached patch "fixes" that behaviour by inserting for DateField instances
and for DateTimeField instances.

But perhaps this is intended, since you can use as the default parameter.

I'm not sure what you mean by "makes queries more complicated"; since there doesn't seem to be a bug here I'm closing the ticket.
