Do you think its planned to do a thing like this?
Also I am wondering if this would really speed up applications. Is creating
savepoints expensive? Will have to do some tests. I think of doing something like:

SAVEPOINT insert_savepoint;
(... without error): SAVEPOINT insert_savepoint; (previous sp will be replaced?)
(... with error): ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT insert_savepoint;
SAVEPOINT insert_savepoint;

By saying "my batch insert" I meant doing inserts without committing
them each time. You are right that with using Statement.executeBatch() all
statement within this batch will fail.
