If we're adding an optional call, do you think it's better to have a
bulk update call or a call to begin bulk updates?  For instance:




while (...) 


The advantages to the second one is that it's simplier to take advantage
of in existing code.  It might also allow encapsulation of none-adding
actions (like doing multiple deletes, etc.).

This might be over kill though...
