Farewell to fsync(): 10× faster database tests with Docker

Using database-specific options, or just Docker’s ability to override a directory with a RAM disk, you can get order of magnitude improvements in performance without changing the way you interact with the database. (Pretty much all databases have a way to disable fsync() and friends.)
