It does on InnoDB files, which seem to be their file structure of the 
future. Not on MyISAM.

But for an archiving system, is that really a big deal? But in any 
event, using InnoDB files, it's a non-issue.

(frankly, I've found you can do a lot of stuff without transactions 
quite nicely. For this, I just can't believe you need transacations, 
the volume of inserts and reads just isn't that large.)
