No, transactions are at the database level.  A rollback affects all work 
done since the last commit.  It has nothing to do with your classes.

Not really.  You don't need that "do_transaction" sub at all.  All you 
have to do is turn off AutoCommit and call dbi_commit() or 
dbi_rollback().  If you want to use it though, it probably is best in a 
base class.
