What is the best way to work around the SPException thrown when updating an SPListItem recently edited by another process?

Is this a good approach? What can be done to not to lose the update data? Would creating a new version of the item if versioning is enabled in the list work?

@AKrasheninnikov: I've altered the wording of your question because we aren't looking for open-ended questions here but rather ones that can have a direct answer. Your original wording asking for a brainstorm indicates a "list" of things and would have been marked community wiki, see:…. Let me know if this isn't clear. Thank you :-) – Alex Angas Jan 29 '10 at 11:03
Alex, you're not too loud but clear ;-) I agree that the 'best practice' questions deserve the status of community wiki. – Alexey Krasheninnikov Feb 1 '10 at 7:37
