In fact, let me be even clearer in case what I've been saying hasn't
come across correctly. The issue outlined by the URL that Sander
mentioned above IMNSHO is a 1.0 ship stopping bug.

We must be atomic, we must be consistent, we must be isolated, and we
must be durable. Additionally, we must also be reliable. There is no
compromise possible. Ctrl-C is but the smallest of the annoying problems
that data stores encounter when trying to ensure durability and
reliability. There are hundreds of others.
