Awesome. That's really nice to have, thanks.
A detail I saw:

But there's not "subtransaction" flag for this method anymore.
Right. Are you worried that this is a backward compatibility issue?
This is a point that I didn't think of. However, I wonder if this
will be a problem. Many old data managers seem to accept a single
argument. It's hard to imagine someone actualy writing a data
manager that supports subtransactions.
Perhaps we need to send a query to zodb-dev and zope-dev.
