Depends on what exactly is to be performed atomically.

Bind2 already tries to solve race conditions an XMPP client encounters
when creating a new session by atomically querying the users archive for
the ID of the latest stanza, binding the resource *and* activating the
stream of live stanzas right after the retrieved ID. I believe you don't
not a database with atomic operations to implement that protocol step
atomically server-side (by just locking the archive and stanza stream of
the user while that action is performed).
