Yeah. The fundamental problem with all the "practical" approaches I've
heard of is that they only work for a subset of possible predicates
(possible WHERE clauses). The idea that you get true serializability
only if your queries are phrased just so is ... icky. So icky that
it doesn't sound like an improvement over what we have.
