commit_on_success does not handle SystemExit

I do not know if commit_on_success intentionally only catches Exception instead of BaseException (or just a plain except:). I was writing a command-line script that called sys.exit(1) when it detected a problem, but the transaction manager was raising TransactionManagementError("Transaction managed block ended with pending COMMIT/ROLLBACK") and it took me a long time to figure out what was going on.

If you don't want to change it to catch all exceptions, may I suggest adding a small note to the docs?

Yea, sounds like a bug... passing to core to check.

Change this (you can use a bare "except" and just document it). I think this is just a consequence of us old-timers not always remembering SystemEerror got moved outside of Exception in the hierarchy at some point in the last decade. We have more things to remember than you young guys, so be nice to us. :-)
