AFAICS in all cases I can find, SCROLLABLE => INSENSITIVE => no UPDATEs.

ISTM we should just restrict Updateable cursors to be non-scrollable,
plus force non-scrollable if the user hasn't specified scrollability but
has specified updateability. That makes sense, since currently we
restrict updateable cursors to not be also specified WITH HOLD. 

If we work out a way that makes sense then we can extend the behaviour
in the next release to include scrollable && updateable at the same

That catches all the problems raised here, I believe.
