as I've said before, although I don't see the need for restarting a
transaction,if you do, I'll implement it.
it's not a big deal to implement, I only want to make sure to keep the
RM interface as simple as possible. but if it's necessary for stuff
like set_priority, not a problem.

RM::restart_transaction(transaction &) if RM::services contains
TM::restart_transaction(transaction &), calls RM::restart_transaction
if available. reconstructs the transaction otherwise.

ok, open issue then.
but how does this relate to the fact that you see retry as an
equivalent to catch, as you've said below?
you can "break" from catch-clauses.

ok, then it's a matter of documentation, that "throw" not only
rethrows exceptions but also "retries".
but please consider this case first:

}catch(my_exc &){

is it expected behaviour that this rethrows isolation_exception, not my_exc?
