I know in my conversations with Dave Shields, he mentioned that
MySQL didn't support transactions properly. Therefore, MySQL can
not be used by anyone looking for a consistent DB. Or, have recent
MySQL databases improved their robustness?

Regardless of the licensing debates, if that is still the case,
that alone should make Subversion not use MySQL. Subversion is
going to require solid transactional support on the backend. If
MySQL is going to open the door for inconsistencies, then we must
not support it.

In point of opinion, I believe MySQL is nightmare to work with and
its (write) performance is awful. If we are going to support any SQL
DB, IMHO, MySQL should not be our preference. -- justin
