Just FYI, in "current" ZODB this is probably less of an issue than it used
to be, since Connection now implements ISynchronizer and sets up Connection.
_storage_sync() as its ISynchronzizer afterCompletion() and newTransaction()
methods. Maybe that's one reason you didn't see as much damage in current
Zope3 as it may have been possible to imagine ;-)
