That's interesting, thank you.

My claim was based on UnQLite using the same storage abstraction layer
as SQLite. I am very confident in that layer. The stuff UnQLite adds on
top, that could lose data for sure, but it'll do it much less frequently
and in much fewer of the usual cases thanks to using the SQLite
abstraction layer.
