Thanks, I'm looking to use the sqlmeta._creating flag to implement the behaivour while changing a data.

   I see a number of approaches.

1. At the first call set an internal flag and do not allow to call the
setter when the flag is already set. Do not forget to set the flag in the
getter too.

2. Override ._create() and .set() methods; ._create() is called upon
INSERT, .set() is called for both INSERT and UPDATE.
