[drupal-devel] LOCK vs. SELECT FOR UPDATE

Hi there,

until now we've largely ignored people who aren't allowed to lock their
tables and thus cannot use Drupal. Somebody suggested
(http://drupal.org/node/1190#comment-55984) to use SELECT FOR
UPDATE in database.mysql.inc instead. Is there any database expert who can
comment on the pros and cons of the approach?
