No, actually, you don't.  The second parameter to the sql_create_x  
sets the first N members of the SSQLS as key fields, which are used in  
building the UPDATE statement.

Thus, if I have a table with a single unique key field (call it "id"),  
then I can update the row where id=42 like this:

     sql_create_X(foo, 1, 0,
         mysqlpp::sql_int, id,
         other, fields,
         go, here)
     foo new_row(5000, init, other, parameters);
     query.update(foo(42), new_row);

This builds a query of the form: "UPDATE foo SET (id=5000,...) WHERE  
(id=42)"  This works because we said the first field of foo is the  
unique key column, so we got a 1-parameter ctor taking  
mysqlpp::sql_int.  We passed a temporary foo to update(), with only  
this first field set.
