for a mysql question post in the mysql forum I'd suggest.
But yes you can do this:
ALTER IGNORE TABLE
ADD droplater UNIQUE(column1, column3, column4)
and later drop the index or leave it in as necessary.
you have to include all the columns that you want unique, and that is unique across those columns. for instance I left out column2 so you could have two rows with same info in columns 1,2,3 or 1,2,4 but not 1,3,4
