Would it not be simpler instead to use explicit table lock when inserting events instead of PositionCounter? It limits performance but I believe result is same as PositionCounter table because it too needs a row level lock

lock table event;
insert into event ...

Simpler? It would be less to setup vs a Position table. In usage it's adding a lock statement vs calling NextPosition() in the insert.

I suppose you will just have to test for the performance difference between the two.
