I agree, but that doesn't mean that we have to use the transaction code
when making updates based on administrator configuration.  I think that
in the long-term, we should think seriously about moving to libraries to
update the back-end so we can create those libraries to handle all the
databases we care to support.

Some of us have customized our installations to use fulltext indexes on
fields that didn't have them previously.
