I probably wouldn't encourage modifying persistent objects in
destructors, but Boost.STM is intended as an alternative to manual
thread synchronization.
so if you've ever locked a mutex in a destructor, you know a use case
for this.

I don't know, as I still don't understand rollback_only. I think Bob's
question was about that too. not about the difference between
force_to_abort/rollback_only, but the difference between rolling back
and marking for rollback.
