I have a related question about this code... in the inner loop tom is
calling abort() ; sleep(); commit().  Does that make sense?

I thought that abort() would revert the root to the database's version
of things, and discard any change that the client had tried to make.
So what does it mean to call commit() again immediately and why that
commit cause a conflict when the client hasn't actually changed
anything since abort() ?
