Django tries to update the object if it already exists in the database.
If it doesn't, then Django does an insert. This is suboptimal from
concurrency standpoint, and does two round trips to the database instead
of just one.

For Django, both insert and update are OK when saving an object to the
database, but Django needs to know which one was done.

I too agree that this doesn't need to be handled in the first version of
the patch.
