That's interesting, new database for each test. I never thought of it. I wonder how it performs vs transaction per test. Thanks

Performance-wise new database will be slower. The first step is creating a new template database. Cloning that template database for each test is fast and runs in parallel. But you made me curious, I'll try to measure the impact.
