[Qgis-developer] Querying PG database in current transaction group

Hi dev's,
We currently use a lot transaction groups (the thing hidden in project
properties) [0], so that triggers do their job on the fly and all layers
are refreshed together on each edit action, without having to manually save
edits and refresh maps.

This works very well, but sometimes we want to trigger procedures on DB's
side and we are forced to some hack by adding attribute tables and
inserting fake feature in it to trigger what we need (such as disconnect
objets, cut features, refresh some views, ..)

Is there a way to access the current transaction group from a layer in a
python layer action so that we could avoid using those fake tables? I would
like to simply reuse the current postgres connection to do some "select
my_special_function([my _args]); "

If we have a way to do that, that would allow QGIS to be a client for in-DB
service-oriented architectures.

Thanks for your lights !

All the best,
