No.  MySQL *does* have RI constraints -- more spec-
ifically, it contains the foreign key constraints
with 'on delete cascade' that I mentioned.

However, as I stated above, the developers may have
decided that this was a function that most people
wouldn't need, and so left it out.  But it still
could be done.
