simulate a transaction

At least on two-phase commit enabled environment you can implement the 
rollback to "undo" your action, you expect things to go right and a very 
small % to go wrong, so implementing a rollback policy isn't such a bad 
idea, I had to do the same years ago for a payment client, when things 
went wrong on our DB, we send a revert payment, since once the payment 
was gone, it had no transactional behaviour so we had to implement a 
rollback policy.

Hope that helps,
