That seems to be the general sentiment of the replies I'm getting here.
Mnesia is certainly a transactional approach to dealing with shared state
but I don't think that really qualifies it as an STM system.  I'm afraid if
we try to delve any deeper it's just going to turn into a semantic argument
about what STM actually means, so to those of you who think Mnesia is an STM
system, I'm just going to say "Great!"
