And to environment cleanup, but yes, the log flushes are the major
slowdown. Any time you create and commit a transaction, BDB will write a
bit of into a log file even if you don't make any changes. I don't konw
_what_ it writes, but I guess it's probably bookkeeping.

Aaargh! The bookkeeping is still there (more so, I'd guess), and on top
of that, the code becomes totally unreadabla. I can see it now... a ton
of questions to the tune, "Why're we aborting this transaction if
nothing failed?"
