Will Magento ever be MyISAM compatible?

Hi there,

I am trying to develop a website for my family business.  Magento really fits our requirements for a good looking and functional website.  The only problem is that i’m on a really limited budget and our current host won’t support Innodb.  They are a good UK hosting company and we have several domains with them.  So moving hosts would be a mess and more expense which we don’t need.  I’ve tried a few e-commerce systems and don’t compare to the functionality of magento.  Will there ever be a future release of Magento that will be MyISAM compatible?

Kind Regards,
