Well, that's the argument as to why the client code has to be capable of
checking whether the commit happened if it's going to attempt a
reconnect and retry. But there's a quite separate question as to
whether the behavior Ryan is claiming for a pre-commit crash is actually
possible. I don't believe it, and I failed to reproduce his test
