    synchronized before each [checkpoint] and the database file is
    synchronized after each completed [checkpoint] and the WAL file
    header is synchronized when a WAL file begins to be reused after
    a checkpoint, but no sync operations occur during most transactions.
    ^With synchronous=FULL in WAL mode, an additional
    sync operation of the WAL file happens after each transaction commit.
    The extra WAL sync following each transaction help ensure that 
    transactions are durable across a power loss, but they do not aid
    in preserving consistency.

    If durability is not a concern, then synchronous=NORMAL is normally
    all one needs in WAL mode.</p>

    <p>^The default setting is usually synchronous=FULL.
    The [SQLITE_EXTRA_DURABLE] compile-time option changes the
    default to synchronous=EXTRA.</p>
