Subj:   DEFAULT values for a new Column

Does anyone know if the following is possible :

Adding a new column to an existing table, using the ALTER statement and set the DEFAULT value to the value of another column in the same table, instead of a hard coded DEFAULT value, as is normally the case? (I realize the same can be achieved by moving all the data to a new table containing the new column, dropping the old and renaming the new etc.., but was hoping for a less involved solution)
