I'd also like to know how. :-)  We can certainly add ENGINE=INNODB (the new 
spelling) to the MySQL statements, but if MySQL doesn't feel in the mood to 
obey (if InnoDB isn't installed or it's disabled), it silently creates MyISAM 
tables instead.  I'd really like a way to tell MySQL to fail rather than 
create non-transactional tables.  This caused me pain last week.
