Informix requires BEGIN. Ingres does not, but has 'set autocommit'
mode, so each SQL statement is its own transaction, like we have now.
I always felt that if I go in to psql and run a query, I want it
applied. I don't want to have to commit every query I type.
I know I can use SET TRANSACTION MODE to change this.
What do others think?
