Let me give you my logic on this --- if people think of BEGIN and START
TRANSACTION as the same, and they do \h begin, they aren't going to see
the read only and isolation options for START TRANSACTION, and I doubt
they are going to think to look there because they think they are the
same.  That's why I think it is good to add those clauses to BEGIN
