This is in response to user complaints about the limit reduction in r74340.

What about the timeout -> incomplete ROLLBACK problem (due to batchInsert() committing per 50 rows)?
It should be better after r74737, but it still sucks.
I'll add a nocommit param to batchInsert or make it use a new insert function or something...when I get the time. This should be done anyway, but particularly if there is no limit.
