I dunno either, but a rollback would undo everything, and a commit
would do everything.  Ending up in a state where we've done some of it
but not all of it is strange.  Being able to run an unbounded number
of commands without a CommandCounterIncrement is *really* strange.

I'm not very sure what to do about it, though.
