Related to Catalyst, my "do_transaction" is in my base controller --
it tracks nested calls and it calls my model's do_transaction method
to start the actual database transaction.

I do this mainly because I have transactions that also send an email.
The actual sending of the email is delayed until the transaction
completes.  I don't want to send out a confirmation email until I know
the database transaction is complete, and that mail might get
generated inside a nested transaction.
