More perfect app server wsgi transactions comment 000

Sure; this was just an example, and I wasn't proposing it replace anything; that's why it just went in a scratch directory. The code you link to would replace Manager, and provides interfaces for the transactions themselves; except it calls Manager a Transaction, and the objects it contains DataManager. A lot of the additional code it provides seems to be for logging and debugging, and two-phase commit. All good code, I'm sure.

In generally WSGI/middleware applies to the integration of code like that into the request cycle; if the transaction handling code was linked to WSGI that would be a bad sign. It's best that the integration code be short, since the transaction code should also be usable outside of a web request, and if the integration code is long then that's a sign the code being integrated is obtuse or incomplete.
