Yes, more precisely it involves creating a separate connection pool.

This is not a limitation of ODB but rather of the databases -- they always
run operations in transactions. Some databases have implicit transactions
which are automatically started before the operation and terminated after.
This can give the illusion that there is no transaction. We have no plans
to support such implicit transactions since they are not without issues.
