If the database support transactions and an exception is raised the
DatabasePool does a .rollback() (if I remember correctly). In this case
you're sure the query has not been executed (it was rolled back

The problem is with backends that do not support transactions, but if
you're crazy enough to use one of them having a query repeated is a
lesser evil. ;)

IMHO, it is safe to rollback, reconnect and send the query again. Maybe
a cp_repeat_query=True|False parameter?
