autoincrement sequence id

postgresql now has the insert into .. working
so create table2 table with all the columns that table1 (original has)
hm, actually select into needs the table to not exist
i guess it is possible in postgresql too, wher you can have the original table, and a new table with the id pk column and then make a plpgsql function that
for _row in select * from table LOOP
select into _id nextval('a_sequence');
insert into new_table(id, ....) values (_id, .....);
