Not that this solves your problem, but my experience tells me that
this is where Postgres really shines -- the concurrency model with
transactions is really smart -- it does row level locking rather than
table-level, and only locks the rows you're gonna update (if you tell

I switched an app from mysql to postgres and tweaked it to give
postgres the necessary hints and the concurrency went way up.
