If you need to do this, then your SQL queries are bad. You should
always specify exactly the fields you want, not "SELECT * FROM...".
It *will* come back and bite you in the rear. If not today, then a
year from now, or even later. Your apps should protect themselves
from changes to the database as best they can.
