I can reverse it: If you don't have anything constructive to say, just 

MySQL itself says [1] that the MyISAM storage engine is not the best 
choice - for situations where the portion of update/delete statements is 
significant in relation to insert and select statements - because of the 
table locking mechanism. So why spending effort to work around the 
database 'restriction' when this fundamentally important part of the 
project is ill chosen?

I've also tried to make my point in the wiki [2] earlier. Now please 
tell me why my arguments are not valid, that way I can perhaps learn 
something out of this.
