"To create a MERGE table, you must specify a UNION=(list-of-tables)
clause that indicates which MyISAM tables you want to use as one. You
can optionally specify an INSERT_METHOD option if you want inserts for
the MERGE table to take place in the first or last table of the UNION
list. Use a value of FIRST or LAST to cause inserts to be made in the
first or last table, respectively. If you do not specify an
INSERT_METHOD option or if you specify it with a value of NO, attempts
to insert rows into the MERGE table result in an error."
