Transactions are a way to ensure that, if you trying to do something
and it doesn't work, you're left in the state you were in before you
started trying to do it.  In real world terms, buying something is a
transaction where I give you money and you give me stuff; if you
discover after I give you money that you're out of stuff, I get my
money back.
