I think /I/ was not quit clear. 
From what I heard, using myISAM is the best option for Joe Schmoe. But it also 
seems that some people will need innodb. Hence I want to ship my drupalCOM 
with a simple script that allows anyone to "change gears" (change to innoDB 
withoout having to jump trough hoops) if need arises.
