The paragraph above assumes that the "client" always holds onto the same 
database connection.  In the case where a framework (i.e. Spring) is 
managing the database connections, perhaps using commons-dbcp, wouldn't it 
be possible that it would grab a connection from the pool, execute the 
insert, then release it back to the pool?
