we are planning to do an in-memory implementation of Neo4j, but first
after 1.0, simply no bandwidth right now :(

However, a common pattern (even if it is not quite exact as Stefan
Armbruster just pointed out) is to roll back transactions after the
test, so things are never committed to the actual nodespace.
