    MySql is nothing more than a filesystem

    Use postgre or firebird (firebird is the closest to the SQL-92 standard).

    You also might be best to reference when Celko said that as well as quoting it.

    Mysql at one time did not offer transactions, foreign key support, triggers, stored procedures or cursors. So it has most certainly grown from its beginnings.

    Actually there's also another database out there that I've been using. RDM Server from Birdstep Raima database division. I'm pretty happy with it. When we did our benchmarks, they've performed over 150% better than MySQL and Postgre SQL in inserting, updating, and thousands% better on queries. Its something you may want to consider. (^_^)
