That's a borderline-reckless thing to say around here.

Not using InnoDB is one thing -- and good luck with that when you've
got lots of users, lots of comments, and some forums -- but actually
removing the option at the server strikes me as more than a little

Incidentally, there are lots of places where Drupal could use
transactions when they're available.  user_add and node_save would
both be a lot more DB-crash-resistant, for starters.
