This will cause problems with at least some SQL DBs. I don't believe
many of them support nested transactions. I don't see a big need for
them either. I don't like any solution that places *any* BDB parameters
in the trail API. Just my .02. If you guys decide to do this I will
have to abstract it in my backend patch.
I am out of town right now (had a death in the family). So I will not
be able to engage in too big of an argument over this until this weekend
when I get back.
