Is that a syntax supported by MySQL?  That is, an INSERT with WHERE clause?
I tried it against Oracle, and it doesn't work (can you imagine how
upsetting it would have been to have learned that, after having worked with
SQL for several years, one can do an update using an INSERT statement?).
I'm pretty sure it doesn't work against MS SQL Server, DB2, etc (not 100%
certain, but 99.9%).
