Perhaps Drupal can be engine-agnostic, i.e. ships with all  the CREATE
TABLE  statements *without* a "type=" part.

In most cases, this will default  to MyISAM.

But again, how  many need Inno anyway? They can do ALTER TABLE
or any of the  other methods if they so  wish. So, is it worth  the  trouble
doing all  this for 1% of the users?
