When there is some kind of event/request processing where all of the
activity takes place on a single thread, it is easy enough to add entries
marking the beginning and end of the processing. I don't know of any tools
(YET, still working on this) that can pull out individual transactions like
this, but at least they can be easily identified.

That's how I've been doing it anyway.
