A minor nit about this statement is that most database systems are really
not "saving your work as you go." What is actually happening is that you
are changing the database in real time as you work. Many don't even cache
keystrokes and thus have no undo capability. So rather than protecting
stupid workers they are really the exact opposite: minefields where free
range stupid users can wreak irreversible havoc.
