** ^Following a successful SQLITE_FCNTL_BEGIN_ATOMIC_WRITE and prior to

** This file control returns [SQLITE_OK] if and only if the writes were

** ^Regardless of whether or not it is successful, this file control takes
** the file descriptor out of batch write mode so that all subsequent
** write operations are independent.

**
** <li>[[SQLITE_FCNTL_ROLLBACK_ATOMIC_WRITE]]
** The [SQLITE_FCNTL_ROLLBACK_ATOMIC_WRITE] opcode causes all write
