What is the possible side effects of not committing after lo_close? I'm
just wondering, incase I have to do anything to the JDBC driver's lo

Whilst on the subject, what is the prospect of nested transactions for
7.0? My number 1 question I get asked is caused by having to use
transactions for lo's, and it would be nice to wrap the JDBC standard lo
calls in their own transactions, but if autoCommit is false (ie, already
in a transaction), then this is a problem.

Nestable transactions (even only 1 extra level) would solve this
