Interesting. My take on that is that since it requires an open
connection to the database in order for the notifications to happen,
it's more like a pubsub sort of approach. Which is still a nice touch,
but it seems like it requires either a direct connection to the db or a
callback mechanism. And that is also from a very quick skim of that
section of the docs.
