Question: Does the semantics of object servers include database-style
reliability (i.e. once you tell 'em the bert's hopped, crash-recovery
can never hop it back)? Remember: that's a guarantee we DON'T make,
and don't intend to make until long after first product, if ever.
(We're a library, not a bank.) We only guarantee that the database
is consistent, not that it doesn't revert to the state a couple seconds
before the CPU fried.
(I suspect that only special-purpose object servers make that guarantee.
It's very costly.)
