Without ignoring your other responses, I remain massively impressed....

SAVEPOINTs allow you to split a transaction into multiple related parts.

You can issue:
(implicit start)
statement3 - causes error - note does not rollback txn
reissue statement3
statement 4 - succeeds
ROLLBACK to X (undoes statement 4, but not statement 3)
statement 5

statements 1,2,3,5 are committed
