Yah; but the syntax varies from one platform to another. Mostly there's
something in the DDL that lets you declare the column as auto-increment;
but Oracle is particularly painful - you have to do a query on an
imaginary table (DUAL?) that is unique to Oracle to get new values for
system-id, i.e. you can't do it with DDL at all.
