You don't have to upgrade to Oracle.  As I stated
before, you can do a dump of the DDL, append the
table type of INNODB to the create statements, and
thus be able to use tables with row-level locking.
This way, you can stay on MySQL.

Or, you could go a half-step up and use BDB tables
within MySQL, which would give you page-level lock-
ing, or something to that effect.

Either way, you have options that will keep you on
MySQL.  Personally, I've just finished demo-ing and
testing RT with upper management, and everyone just
loves the tool.  My plan is to migrate this to pro-
duction, but to convert the tables to InnoDB, since
we'll have 250+ employees creating, updating, and
searching tickets all at once.
