First, thank you for you effort. I already begin to think that nobody

You are right. At least sect2 can be added later whenever this second
command will appear.

Really, I haven't found such tests in PL/Python suite, so I haven't
translated it to Tcl. 

It might be good idea to add such test.

I've copied this code from PL/Python subtransaction object and 
it has following comment:
   /* Be sure that cells of explicit_subtransactions list are long-lived */
But in Tcl case wi don't have to maintain our own stack in the form of
list. We use C-language stack and keep our data in the local variables.
So, probably changing of memory contexts is not necessary at all.

But it require a bit more investigation and testing.

With best regards, Victor
