    If a conflict happens, you have two choices. The first choice is
    that you live with the error and you try again. Statistically,
    conflicts are going to happen, but only in situations where objects
    are "hot-spots".  Most problems like this can be "designed away";
    if you can redesign your application so that the changes get
    spread around to many different objects then you can usually get
    rid of the hot spot.

       This is totally retarded.  Why can't we get a mutex instead?
