Currently, cascaded foreign key actions do not activate triggers.

Not to start a flamewar, but this does work in PostgreSQL for years. When using innoDB, it should be relative simple to move to PostgreSQL.

I have a PostgreSQL db for some data.. for which there is better support on PostgreSQL. Will give the moving a thought. Thanks. – ThinkingMonkey Apr 22 '12 at 17:09
