Transactions are also useful if you're not sure if something you're
about to try is going to work. For instance, When comex (or "" or ""
or player "the administrator" as e has been called lately) tried
earlier to scam the new RFJ rule, e may have wanted to put it all in a
transaction, so that if it didn't work, e didn't change names and
didn't submit RFJs that are kinda pointless if e can't rule on them.
