current transaction should be committed (not sure if our driver does
this. David, any comments here?), and new one will have new
transaction isolation. However, TRANSACTION_READ_UNCOMMITTED is not
supported, so your second statement will throw an exception.

TRANSACTION_SERIALIZABLE - isc_tpb_consistency
TRANSACTION_READ_COMMITTED - isc_tpb_read_committed & isc_tpb_rec_version
TRANSACTION_NONE - not supported

Then take a org.firebirdsql.jca.FBTpb source and check the mapping
there. :)
