Note that we already have access to transaction safe tables; We only
need some more glue between those and MySQL to test it and make a release...
(On the other hand, we will not give any time table for this, as we
will not release anything until we are satisfied with the performance
of the above; But as this isn't done by us, it will not take time
from other development issues)
