The auto-commit flag only affects the Repository's internal transaction
and is unrelated to transactions created with startTransaction(). For
convenience reasons, class Repository implements the Transaction
interface. This makes adding individual files easier as one can ommit
the startTransaction() and commit() calls, at the cost of a (slightly)
more complex API.
