I really could use a post publishing hook.
Standard use case: delay indexing at the end of the request to only do it once per object even if the object has been modified 4 times.
Today there's the REQUEST._hold() hack with an instance having a __del__, but this gets executed outside the main transaction, and REQUEST is already dying.
I'd like a post-publishing hook that's called in the initial REQUEST and transaction.
I haven't been folowing this thread, so I asked Gary what it was about. :)
Based on that, I'd like to suggest:
There are two possibilities:
1. A post publishing hook. I think this would be appropriate in the case where you really want to augment the publishing process. For example, I hpe someday to use something like this to provide another way (other than metal) to provide standard look and feel.
Unfortunately, I think there are a lot of open issues, at least in my mind, about how something like this should work.
2. A pre-commit hook. I think your use case fits this much better. We've thought about this for some time. In fact, I've talked about it enough that I thought we already had this, but we don't.
I think this is the way to go for your use case.
I'll post a proposal on the zodb-dev list.
