multidatabase transactions

hi,
i wanted to implement multidatabase transactions, in a project of
mine.

The AWDR book by DHH and Sam Ruby, says that rails does not support
easily the usecase where we are updating multiple databases
concurrently.

eg:
==== CODE START ====
the Account and User models have different connections.

acc1 = Account.find(10)
acc1 = Account.find(20)

begin
  Account.transaction do
    acc1.withdraw(100)
    acc2.deposit(100)

    User.transaction do
       acc1.user.balance = acc1.balance
       acc1.user.save!
       acc2.user.balance = acc2.balance
       acc2.user.save!
    end
    raise "the Account model will be rolledback not not the User model
as both the classes have diff. connections"
  end
rescue Exception => err
puts "Error | #{err.class} #{err.to_s} #{err.backtrace}"
#to get the current values in the db
[acc1.acc2].each {|x| x.reload }
end

what will happen is that the changes for:
  acc1.withdraw(100)
  acc2.deposit(100)

will be rolled-back

but the changes for:
acc1.user.balance = acc1.balance
acc2.user.balance = acc2.balance

will not be rolledback, as they are on different database connections.

==== CODE END ====

How to solve this, how to keep the transaction across db
connections.
any ideas?

questions?
1) can i manually maintain the transaction, rather than a DSL. the DSL
enforces a nesting relationship but i want a grouping
relationship.
2) This same problem does not occur if the db connection is the same,
how?
3) how do we check that two db connections are different,
is <Model>.connection == <Model>.connection sufficient?
4) what does the option key :joinable do in active_record/
connection_adapters/abstract/database_statements.rb. it is not
mentioned in the docs.

i wanted to implement multidatabase transactions. How do we do this?
Has anyone faced this problem?

thanks for the help,
deepak.
