GeneralACID transactions and managed code Pin

Given the rich/complete metadata and run-time analysis (JIT) of managed code, I'm surprised .NET and/or Java do not have a way to create true transactions in the engine.

It should be relatively easy to considering how much information is available in terms of how the data is laid out in memory - unless I'm missing something. By *relatively* I mean compared to say, trying to implement such a thing in unmanaged code.

It strikes me as a missed opportunity, as I know several areas where it could potentially come in handy, maybe more so with parallel operations as well.

But again, maybe I'm missing something. Maybe it's more difficult than I imagine.

I'd try to do it myself but,

A) It's a lot of man-years of effort
B) It requires changes to the CLI or JVM - and my code will never "go viral" enough to be adopted into major engines.
C) I've never done it before. It's a bit ambitious for a first attempt at implementing ACID transactions.
