I was just about to say the same thing when this came in.  I think you want
InnoDB tables, not MyISAM.  In particular, large tables like the attachment
table will have problems, and frequently updated tables like the session
table will have crash recovery issues.  The crash recovery in the InnoDB
backend is more robust, as is the indexing methodology.
