> There are two reasons to support INSERT:
> - It helps new users feel comfortable (everyone's first statement will be to try to INSERT
something, we should make that a positive experience instead of slapping them)
> - Even though it is synonymous with update it is still useful in your code to have both
to help communicate intent, similar to choosing good variable names
> The only downside is explaining how INSERT isn't a "true" insert because it doesn't error
out if the row already exists -- but we already have to explain that same concept for UPDATE;
the cognitive load is extremely minor.
