I now have this, which works (but is rather ugly)... I'd be grateful if anyone 
can tell me a more elegant way to do it:

	try (Transaction t = db.startTransaction()) {
           if (b == null) {
             db.update("delete from Foo where A=? and B is null", a);
           else {
             db.update("delete from Foo where A=? and B=?", a, b);
           update("insert into Foo values(?,?)", a, b);
