I think everybody knows that this is out of the question. Developing a 
new transactional storage engine from scratch in the required timeframe 
is unrealistic.

If they really lose InnoDB, the only alternative I see is to approach 
SleepyCat and hope, Oracle isn't already talking to them. However, last 
time I looked BDB did not have foreign key support or MVCC.

You remember those T-shirts with "Foreign keys - check"? What are we 
going to see now ... "Foreign keys - you still don't really need them"?
