Provide a way to intercept method calls from EntityManager

                 Key: SEAMPERSIST-75
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAMPERSIST-75
             Project: Seam Persistence
          Issue Type: Feature Request
    Affects Versions: 3.1.0.Beta4
            Reporter: Anthony O.
            Priority: Critical

I'm trying to intercept method calls to {{EntityManager}} in order to make modifications to some entities before persisting them.
I've tried many ways to do that (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8213285/how-to-intercept-methods-of-entitymanager-with-seam-3) but I see that the real problem is that it's not easy to make a proxy behind the {{EntityManager}} bean created by {{org.jboss.seam.persistence.ManagedPersistenceContextExtension}}.
It seems that a way to do that has been thinked, but cannot be used today. In {{ManagedPersistenceContextExtension.beforeBeanDiscovery}}, a {{Set}} of {{SeamPersistenceProvider}} s is created *BUT* {{org.jboss.seam.persistence.HibernatePersistenceProvider}} is always put in front of all others, so we cannot create our own provider to extend the features of current ones as it is chosen in EE environment which use hibernate (JBoss 7 for instance).

I think the best way to do that would be to create a {{Producer}} bean and not an instanciable bean, as with CDI we could replace that {{Producer}} with an {{@Observes ProcessProducer}} and a {{setProducer()}} to extend it.
At the moment, we can only {{@Observes ProcessBean}} on the {{EntityManager}} bean created by Seam Persistence, and do nothing about it as the CDI spec doesn't enable us to ask the container to replace the observed bean with {{ProcessBean}}.
