The pain of asynchronous access can be alleviated or even solved with
an API for transactions, or a group of SQL queries that need be
executed in order. Commonly, if a transaction fails in the middle, the
database is rolled-back to the state before the transaction started.
There can then be a callback when the transaction finished or fails,
with details on what query failed.
