mySQL Developers Adding Transaction Support

A short article posted to MySQL.com states that a version of MySQL with transaction support is under development. Confusingly, they refer to this version as MaxSQL.

The article describes MaxSQL as "a MySQL distribution compiled with Sleepycat Software's BerkeleyDB support for transactions." Perhaps we do not use MySQL enough, but we do not understand the relationship between MySQL and the BerkeleyDB. Is MySQL implemented on top of BerkeleyDB, or is BerkeleyDB integrated as a datastore primarily to support the transaction management process?
