Yes, I think he does --- which adds a whole 'nother layer of complexity
and performance penalty to the thing, because all those held locks etc
have to be recorded on disk before you promise to commit.

That part is soluble in theory though, ie, I believe that it can be
done (not efficiently, but it can be done).  I don't see what to do
about the no-commit-ack problem.
