That would really only be a workaround (arguably still better than what we
have now - which is basically you ask for a banana and I give you an apple
- what if other procedures in cuirass assume it's a banana? :) ).

We would be doing the work that SQLite would have done, but we'd do it in a bad
way (by blocking everyone else).

It's not really useful to undo all the progress relational databases have made.

If we had multiple transactions in progress touching the same row, SQLite would
use MVCC to hold diverging copies of the same row at the same time, blocking
