(hint: PostgreSQL or Oracle, but probably not MySQL).

I think MySQL has supported transactions (and foreign keys and such) for quite a long time now. From its manual: MySQL Server (version 3.23-max and all versions 4.0 and above) supports transactions with the InnoDB and BDB transactional storage engines. InnoDB provides full ACID compliance.

    Yes, but from what I understand, when you start using InnoDB, you sacrifice the only advantage MySQL has, which is speed and reliability for non-transactional database accesses. So if you want a fast, reliable transactional database, even MySQL with InnoDB doesn't cut it. Hence, my recommendation for PostgreSQL or Oracle, depending on your budget.
