I added it for the same reason we have executeSql() with no callbacks. I
can remove it if desired. I expected it to be used in cases where you want
to change the version (e.g. from '' to '1.0') without changing the schema,
but where you simply don't really have any good thing to do if it goes
wrong. I can remove it if you don't think it'll be important, but then we
might as well remove the one with just the first callback, since I can
definitely see use cases for changing the version number without doing
