Generally, I do not like such implicit commits.  It is likely to catch
someone by surprise.  On the other, I do not think many people would
intentionally do backup as part of a larger transaction.

In my opinion, the ideal solution would be to execute backup in a
nested transaction.  I do not know whether it is worth the effort.
