If your interface passes the transaction as a explicit parameter it would be
easier to have an adapter (either in your code or client code) such that:

 a() -> set thread local
 b() -> c()
 c() -> get thread local
        d(..., transaction, ...)

The adapter layer would parallel the Base API without the explicit
transaction parameter.
