** 1:  The cursor must have been opened with wrFlag==1

** 2:  No other cursors may be open with wrFlag==0 on the same table


**
** 3:  The database must be writable (not on read-only media)
**
** 4:  There must be an active transaction.

** Condition 2 warrants further discussion.  If any cursor is opened
** on a table with wrFlag==0, that prevents all other cursors from
** writing to that table.  This is a kind of "read-lock".  When a cursor
** is opened with wrFlag==0 it is guaranteed that the table will not
** change as long as the cursor is open.  This allows the cursor to
** do a sequential scan of the table without having to worry about
** entries being inserted or deleted during the scan.  Cursors should
** be opened with wrFlag==0 only if this read-lock property is needed.
** That is to say, cursors should be opened with wrFlag==0 only if they
** intend to use the sqlite3BtreeNext() system call.  All other cursors
** should be opened with wrFlag==1 even if they never really intend
** to write.
