This is sounding a whole lot like the concerns that prompted us to
reject server-side autocommit a little while ago.

The problem with rejiggering error-handling behavior is that you *will*
break existing code, on a rather fundamental level, and it's not even
obvious that it's broken until after things have gone badly wrong.

I don't have a good solution, but I do think that you need to set things
up so that an application or script must invoke the new behavior
explicitly.  Hidden defaults that silently change such behavior look
like land mines waiting to be stepped on.
