	We now use transactions instead of locks, in HEAD. Bugzilla does
not use whole-table locks anywhere anymore. As far as how valid this
section still is, we don't know, because we haven't had any large
installations use our new transaction-based code instead of our old
locking code. So I have no idea how it performs, or anything.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
