I think this feature is discussable ... I, for one, have never, ever had
the need for nested transactions.

My classes never started the transactions - they don't need it.

Even if I have special classes, ORBs or POMs in anyway, it's
the application, not the middle-layer/business objects/etc that
use the transactions (in my apps). And hey, I've also never needed
to save _part_ of my stuff - because when that happens - there's
still something terrible wrong :)
