True indeed. The problem with MySQL's storage engines is that the
transaction_support and savepoint_support driver capabilities cannot
be relied upon because they depend on a couple of factors - how the
database server was compiled and configured, how particular tables
were created and so on. The driver caps may get things wrong in quite
a few cases.

BTW I've finished updating the test kit which should now cover all
aspects of transactions and savepoints as well. I'd greatly appreciate
if everyone could give the current cvs revisions a try and report
success and failures.
