That's not quite right--RelStorage does not maintain any per-client
notification list.  Instead, each client asks whether any transactions
have committed since the last poll.  The transaction ID of the last poll
is tracked by the storage instance bound to the connection.  If any
transactions have committed, then the client gets a list of OIDs changed
by those transactions and invalidates the corresponding objects.
