I thought that 4.0.1+ was introducing transactions, or at least 4.1 is. We
have MySQL on our production sites for clients and have to say it is pretty
solid. We have some clients running 20K plus records.

There was some issues with 4.0.12-13 though. As far as I know 4.0.17 is
solid as a rock so far.
