hi jim!

thanks for your reply, i already thought about such a solution and
discarded it because it would still be necessary to call a method
on an object to recatalog it. this step (the programmer's responsibility)
i want to eliminate for several reasons.

so, what i need is a way to have my mechanism called before transaction
commits (would be possible to use the hooks provided by zodb 3.4 for
that, sure) and cycle through all modified objects (that's where the
hooks in 3.4 are not enough for me, they don't provide any way to access
a list of modified objects).

as i showed in my first post, the callback to modified objects works
as expected, but in the called method i'm not able to acquire the
responsible Catalog for the modified object.

up to what point can i modify objects in a transaction? why doesn't
acquisition on my objects work in Connection::tpc_begin() ???
