Actually, I could share the same database handle and transaction among
all threads. However, even then, if the last servlet thread is
terminated the cleanup will not be done. This isn't a problem with my
in-scheme synchronization above, since the next servlet thread to
start will get a new set of semaphores and such, but sqlite could be
left in a locked state. Even if I close the transaction from a will on
the database handle, that could leave it locked until the GC actually

I'm guessing this requires a different solution.
