It'd be good to have savepoints right now.  I'm not sure it'd be good to
expose the nested transactions implementation if we are going to offer
savepoints later, because it means we will have to keep nested
transactions forever.

Maybe it is a good idea to hide the implementation details and offer
only the standard SAVEPOINT feature.  I'm not sure how hard it is to
change the syntax; I don't think it'd be a big deal.
