OK, but InnoDB is open source and well-understood and does not restart
statements when it tries to update a record that was updated by a
concurrent transaction. The fact that Oracle is a mess doesn't mean
that all relational databases are a mess, or even that a feature Oracle
does badly can't be done well.
