Level of rollback on errors.
1. Transaction
    Rollback the current transaction entirely on errors. This was the unique
    behavior of old drivers becauase PG has no savepoint functionality until

2. Statement
    Rollback the current (ODBC) statement on errors (in case of 8.0 or later
    version servers). The driver calls a SAVEPOINT command just before starting
    each (ODBC) statement and automatically ROLLBACK to the savepoint on errors
    or RELEASE it on success. If you expect Oracle-like automatic per statement
    rollback, please use this level.

3. Nop
    You can(have to) call some SAVEPOINT commands and rollback to a savepoint
    on errors by yourself. Please note you have to rollback the current
    transcation or ROLLBACK to a savepoint on errors (by yourself) to continue
    the application.
