sql

Hi folks!
I need MySQL query that can select the minimal value that is not present in the table Smilie.
Only query, without any languages, scripts, temporary tables etc.,
just SQL query for MySQL.

Example:
sql# select * from some;
+------+
| id |
+------+
| 1 |
| 2 |
| 4 |
| 5 |
| 6 |
| 7 |
| 8 |
| 9 |
| 10 |
+------+
Needed value is 3.
