For pymongo there is a "safe" parameter you can apply to operations or the connection as a whole. 10gen made a really stupid default decision here. Instead of calling it safe they should have called it async, and it should have defaulted to off.

So by default Mongo write operations are asynchronous and you have to explicitly ask for error codes later.
