Alexei, awesome work.

if you take a look at my patch addressing deadlocks(
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/80461/), i actually added a check to get 
rid of the blind insert logic we had so that should lower the number of 
rollbacks (except for race conditions, which is what the function was 
designed for). i did some minor performance testing as well and will add a 
few notes to the patch where performance can be improved but requires a 
larger schema change.  Jay, please take a look there as well if you have

i look forward to these results, from my quick testing with Mongo, we get 
about 10x the write speed vs mysql.

i don't think sql is the recommended back in real deployments but that 
said, given the modest load of tempest tests, i would expect our sql 
backend be able to handle it.
