I was wrong. Quoting

   From MySQL 4.0 on, the InnoDB storage engine is
   enabled by default. If you don't want to use InnoDB
   tables, you can add the skip-innodb option to your
   MySQL option file.

And also

   InnoDB provides MySQL with a transaction-safe (ACID
   compliant) storage engine with commit, rollback,
   and crash recovery capabilities. InnoDB does locking
   on the row level and also provides an Oracle-style
   consistent non-locking read in SELECT statements.
