Hi Brian,

I was mentioned in the daily summaries as volunteering to look
into this as I wanted transactions.  However other commitments
kept me from having time to do anything on this.

What I was after was more wrapping each call to Catalyst up in a
transaction.  So Catalyst would only commit if everything was okay,
otherwise there would be an implicit rollback.

However I see plenty of room for both approaches!
