I understand this to mean that you want to commit/rollback your
changes with a different child process.

Without going into the merits or viability of this approach (bad idea
BTW IMO), I would suggest you design for this functionality.  For
example, create a versioning table that contains old values, or add an
extra column to tables that indicate the state of the record (review,
approved, unapproved, etc.).  Much more work, I know :)
