It's hard for me to understand why anyone would want a traditional rdbms without transaction support (but I suppose that's why I've never really been a mysql user).

Depending on your other requirements, you might want to at least take a look at postgres. It has just about the fastest insert performance of anything you're likely to be looking at (I have an optimized instance for $WORK that peaks at about 30,000 rows inserted per second on fairly regular hardware).
