View as plain text  
This is planned for the near? future.  But right now it's not
possible.

In the manual there's a trick described for how to simulate
sequences using an auto_increment column and something like:

    SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID(auto_column + 1)

Please read that section of the manual.
