Description (last modified by holvianssi)

The use case is automatically fetching the value for expressions when saving to DB. For example:

> user = User.objects.create(username=Lower('Anssi'))
> user.username == 'anssi'

While the above feature can be simulated somewhat easily by calling refresh_from_db() after save, an in-built implementation has the ability to use RETURNING as an optimization. In addition, it seems that refreshing objects on save would be a nice default, though this might be a bit backwards incompatible in some cases.
