Also, is there any reason for using VARCHAR instead of TEXT?

This really seems like overkill for a small amount of options, and handling types in PHP is only useful if you have a specific thing that writes to a config value and cross-checks the proper typing and everything.

Yeah. It wouldn't even really be a choice between them if there were a lot of potential options. The distinct lack of configuration settings is what makes me wonder... I guess I should just go with the key-value store, even if it would be less complex than a single row.

Yeah. I've read up on a lot of the stuff InnoDB does (and have been using it in some test projects), but The Boss doesn't really approve of its use for whatever reason. I'm just trying to weight if it's worth waging a battle over or not.
