+1, the collective.lead transaction support looks nice.

its more to do with the fact that proxies are restrictive by default, and
the sa api likes to monkey attributes on instances. christian kicked off
some nice work with the sa developers at pycon to get this behavior
configurable in sa ( instrumentation branch) which obviate the need to
remove the proxies before calling into sa apis on an object.

sounds good, or failing that (due to additional dependencies), a common base
