Can Slash 2.2.x work with MySQL Max 4.0?

Hi there. Over at geekizoid (no, we don't have our front page up yet, yes we are working on it) we are exploring the possibility of moving to MySQL Max 4.0 to get the additional features (like row level locking) that it offers. This seems to scale better (take a look at the discussion on K5 to see what I'm talking about.) I'd like to be able to do it just for the scoop sites we host (we do both slash and scoop hosting, yes there will be a YASS at some point, but we want to get the graphics and small shiny objects finished first), but I don't want to do it if slash won't play well with it. Yes, I know it's alpha level code and might eat Taiwan. Still, row level locking could be seriously cool, right? What do you guys think?
