Conversion to MyISAM engine (to solve the index key problem) and utf8mb4_unicode_ci collation went okay

Hey Tom,

Yes, you can convert it to MyISAM if you want to. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll update it for the future releases.

I want to convert to DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci

but get error "specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes"

Would it be okay to set "ENGINE=MyISAM" rather than "ENGINE=InnoDB" ?? -- this would remove the problem of the key being too long, but I'm not sure if you're using features specific to InnoDB

Also -- maybe you could change your install script "stubs/as.sql" to use a more recent COLLATION than utf8_unicode_ci

for example: ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci;

thanks
