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?

Code talks. Write code or shut the hell up.
