Your db admin may be thinking of older versions of MySQL (either that,
or he's been visiting the OpenACS Web site. :-))

Older versions of MySQL didn't have transaction support, but recent versions
do.  You need to make sure to use table types that support transactions.
(For example, ISAM and MyISAM tables don't, BDB tables do.)
