We don't use triggers (unfortunately).  However, we do use transactions, 
foreign keys and foreign key constraints.  I think that demanding 15 year old 
technology is a reasonnable expectation.

We limited ourselves to the MySQL 4.1 feature-set.

Good for them, this is open source.  Perhaps the'll have good ideas that we 
can integrate.  However, for us to go backward would be self defeating.  

Once again.  MySQL:  Yes, if someone steps forward to maintain it.  PHP4:  Not 
as part of the mainline.
