sure, this is what I tried by defining the concepts, although I was never sure
if those are sufficient for all conceivable transactional resources.

what's still missing from there is an interface to conduct transactions which
involve more than 1 resource, e.g. something like this in Berkeley:

(what they call a "local transaction manager" I call a "resource manager", and
what they call a "global transaction manager" I call a "transaction manager")

we'd also have to find common ground on what Bob calls I think
a "row_level_lock_contention" and I call an "isolation_exception", and I'm
sure there is the equivalent in Boost.STM.
