Serial Numbers...On Commit or On Creation?

Post

Hello,

I'm wrestling with why I would use On Commit rather than On Creation for my ID numbers in my tables.  I thought at first that on commit would prevent me from "using up" serial numbers in the event a user decides not to save the new record.  But then I realize that records are saved automatically anyway.

Does anyone have any examples of when one would want On Commit instead of On Creation?
