right. take a look at twisted.forum.manager.py postMessage() and
_messagePoster() for an example.

There is support for doing so.

Specifically, adabpi.ConnectionPool.interaction() lets you pass a
callable object  (a function or method). The method you pass will be
called with an instance of adabpi.Transaction, upon which you can run a
series of SQL commands, after which the changes will be commited
automatically (or rollbacked if there's an exception thrown.)

So, write a function that accepts one argument, an instance of
adbapi.Transaction, and does a series of SQL commands on this instance.
Then, pass this function to your connectionpoool's interaction() method.

Nope, it will automatically do that for you, on the assumption
enterprise.adbapi is imported before your program starts, i.e. before
you call your Application's run() method (or t.i.main.run()).
