fair enough :) currently only SimpleDbPersistenceManager and subclasses thereof
do support transactions. i guess BerkeleyDBPersistenceManager in contrib does
also but i didn't test it.

wrt externalBlobs=true: blobs in the file system are not stored within
the context
of a transaction, i.e. the changes in the fs wont be reverted on
rollback. if you do
need transaction support you have to specify externalBlobs=false.
