MySQL 3.23. :-)

They've supported transactions for quite a while. (Originally via BDB
interestingly enough, but now they support a few different transactional
backends.)

Probably would've simplfied things a bit to have the SQL rather than the raw
record access but I don't know enough about the implementation to have an
intelligent opinion.
