// Represents an SQL transaction.
// In general, consider AVOIDING this and using DbNestableTransaction
// instead. DbTransaction uses BEGIN TRANSACTION/COMMIT/ROLLBACK, and so
// if you accidentally nest it, things go wrong.
// DbNestableTransaction uses SAVEPOINT x/RELEASE x/ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT x
// instead, which is safely nestable as long as x is transaction-specific,
// and RELEASE behaves like COMMIT when it reaches the top level.
// Create the transaction. It starts in a "successful" state.
// When the transaction is destroyed, it commits or rolls back depending
// on whether it's been told of failure or not.
// Mark the transaction as a failure.
