I'm not the curious type at all. At least not the type you mention here.
I was reading about transactions in the PHP5 manual and since they stated
that the mysqli_xx functions were experimental, I wondered if they were
reliable enough to use them in a production environment. Data integrity rely
at least a bit on transactions so that's my concern. It's always too late
when you find that your data have been corrupted in any way.
