No I don't think so. What it does is, it cancels problematic 
transactions. Detecting these requires finding certain read-write 
conflicts between transactions. In a way this resembles serialization 
graph testing. Under snapshot isolation this seems to become easier than 
in the general case due to some 'nice' properties of the serialization 
graphs involved here. See the remarks about 'vulnerable edges' and 
'dangerous structures' in section 2.2 of the paper.
