Yes, with this design, that's true. Under what circumstances would this
be a problem? Most applications use a transaction in conjunction with a
human interaction, and for human's, 200 ms is literally a blink of the
eye. What kinds of applications depend on single thread transaction
rate (say, other than badly structured benchmarks)? Group commits could
always be turned off, but maybe there's something smarter we could do if
we had a better understanding of the problem.
