They can, but so what? What are they going to do with the transaction 
object? It doesn't have any information they can use, and the only method 
on there is one that would raise an exception if they called it.

If the author wants to pass context information to their error handler 
they can (only) do so using currying, I don't see how the SQLTransaction 
object is going to help them.
