Alas, I am save but one spawned process amongst billions... were I to have
Haskell's STM, I could share your mind to spew my anti-database rhetoric
in tandem with my Erlang preso, but it were not to be so. Of course, both
would have unexplained pauses where I stopped talking to one group whilst
the STM resolved some versioned update failure... (you know how that
optimistic concurrency goes) ;-)
