nope. you can always end up losing your database with this set, you better
recognise it. time pressure is irrelevant (well actually improves the
likelihood of making a simple error and losing the db yourself)
_disable_logging would be better renamed
_I_REALLY_REALLY_REALLY_DONT_CARE_ABOUT_THIS_DATA. If you set it, that is
what you mean.

oh, and importing for a presentation, what a weird pressure on a database.
