Yes but how do I construct them with SqlAlchemy?
One possible option I found is to enable the logging of some parts of
SqlAlchemy, and use that log, (echo=True in create_engine does
something similar) but maybe there is a better option..

But I need to filter only the insert/update/delete probably..

And in general the processes have to run independently so in case of
database connection problems I would just let them retry until it
actually works.

When the transaction actually works then in the backed up log I can
add a marker(or archive the log), to avoid replaying it.
