Perhaps you could simply return the list of ROLE(s) being used in a
delimited string of some kind. It is just a string of characters afterall.

What would user_transaction and user_connection return?

For my purposes (event driven auto synchronization of datasets on clients) I
only need to know that certain changes were committed via another connection
and not the current one. A unique ID of some sort is all I need.

Having the transaction would also be useful.

Thanks for bringing this up. It could help me out a lot, not to mention
thousands of others who use features in IBO that would reap immediate
benefits from this.
