Module-level should be 'transaction level'. You need to implement ZODB's
snapshot-ability to provide similar MVCC semantics.

The transaction boundary is gonna give you another hard time: two phase

Memcache doesn't support transactions at all, so the only way to come up
with a minimized risk is to implement a "one phase" data manager which
does its work during `vote` and is run as the last data manager in the
vote phase. Note that this isn't a good idea in general but works
reliable if your backend  supports a "one phase commit" (which memcache
doesn't seem to do).

I'd also avoid putting a generally reusable "tool" package in the place
that it uses the "one phase" data manager hack. Generally applications
mixing ZODB with other database like MySQL are going to need that
