It's because the underlying table type is implemented using Berkeley
DB3, which does support transactions.  And that has several modes of
operation, hash, btree and recno.

I haven't looked into it, but I would imagine that it makes transactions
across different tables kind of tricky.  In fact, I'd class it as a bit
of a hack.  But don't take my opinion for it, because this is all based
on 2nd hand evidence.
