MySQL Performance Blog -- InnoDB vs MyISAM vs Falcon benchmarks. Great test and lots of figures and graphs. It highlights two things. (1) Falcon is far from being mature, Jim still got lots to do, but I guess that's still pretty impressive after 11 months of work (2) MyISAM toasts InnoDB in read performance is a myth. InnoDB rules for now with low concurrency. Eagerly waiting for part II.
