I don't know.  That is, yes, it greatly improves the locking issue by
giving better granularity, I dunno if InnoDB gives ACID compliance (it
did _not_ the last time I looked, like 12 months ago, but it probably
does now), BUT I would bet it also fixes that "raw speed problem" that
MySQL has.  ;-)

I don't need more than PG gives me, and in a brief trawl across the
web I saw a lot of people _ask_ that question, and nobody answered.  I
suspect that basically nobody is using InnoDB ;-).  It's worth taking
a look around, when I get a round tuit or so....
