Hi Oliver,

The increment by N aproach, where N < batch size, is
imho very original. It should work but the DBAppender
code has to be compatible with different RDBMSs. The
approach you suggest assumes that we can manually set
event_id, which is not necessarily always the case, or
maybe it is, but I am not sure. More importantly, on
some RDBMS we are using auto-generated keys where it
is not always possible to set the increment value.
(Maybe it is always possible, I'll have to check that
too.)

Anyway, I now know when an increment value other than
1 could be useful. 

Thanks again for your help.
