Kapil,

I don't know if you've run across this yet, but the method call:

get_transaction()

In Python (after you've imported the ZODB module) returns the result of
the get_transaction global, which helps do some transaction-related
things:

get_transaction().commit()
get_transaction().abort()
get_transaction().note()

There are also semantics for committing subtransactions, though I'm not
real clear on them.  I *think* you commit a subtransaction by doing:

get_transaction().commit(1)

See Jim's ZODB UML model at
http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Developer/Models/ZODB for more info.

You could probably emulate what you need to do with a combination of
these commands.
