Despite how things might seem, we gained some substantial
simplifications by doing things this way and I reject the term
'misdesign':-)  If writing this from scratch under similar time
constraints, we would still handle this a similar way.

But this suspend/resume mechanism was never intended to last as long as
it has - it was meant to be a stepping stone to a more-sophisticated
transaction mechanism that we have still not found time to develop,
mostly because this existing mechanism is "good enough" most of the
time.
