Is this what's mentioned in the docs/examples as embedded mode, or even
lower level? I thought about using it embedded, but what scared me a bit
is that locking is turned of completely when using it this way, and so
big transactions could make smaller ones wait. OTOH real big
transactions are not very probable for my usecase and the embedded
version is probably very very fast :).

Yep, it implies non-blocking IO. All right.. I think first I should see
how the embedded stuff works out.  thanks for the suggestion,
