Aria is crash safe and consistent, which should make it an option for
a lot of users; Arjen, how often do you need to do rollback on a
fulltext index ?
Such a table is not "purely" an index, it just happens to have columns
that need such indexing.
Data in multiple tables belongs together, and is inserted/updated at
the same time. Rollback is relevant/important.
Please don't recycle the ancient argument that you don't need
transactions, it's not a winner.
