But you have multiple copies for a reason, which is that they might 
have different state.  One way or another you have to store that state. 
  However, I agree that the naive implementation of this would be pretty 
wasteful - ideally you'd have some form of copy-on-write, but I don't 
know how you'd implement that portably.  You might get by with 
read-only vs. read-write transactions...

And yes, GLORP doesn't forward the changes from one session to another, 
but this transaction engine could - if you only have one GLORP session 
at the root, any time you actually committed changes to it, it could 
easily notify any open transactions.

Whatever works :).
