Developer control of Transactions

For situations when within a complex database structure adding or changing a record in one table requires that records in some number of other tables must also be updated, it would be very helpful to have transactional control via FileMaker script commands.

 

Having real transactional control would also be a big help when FileMaker is being compared to other database systems, as at the present time the lack of transactional control is sometimes seen as a strike against FileMaker.

 

Is providing developer control of transactions via script commands something that could be added to FileMaker?
