All SQL Yoga queries go through a central handler that checks for a  
particular error message from RevDB. If the error is known to be  
caused by the server disappearing then SQL Yoga tries to reconnect  
once and run the query again.

I currently have code in place for MySQL and SQLite (SQLite can  
sometimes has issues if running over a network drive).
