WordPress 2.9 upgrade…back to the bad old days

(Don’t bother to read this unless you use WordPress.)  I used to dread upgrading WordPress because it involved a bunch of tedium and manual work.  Then they made it a single button operation in the dashboard.  But with the newest version, they require MySQL version Do.Not.Have, so I had to create a new 5.0 database, split the SQL updates into tiny 2 MB files that 1and1 could handle, scan SQL files for some funny invisible question mark space vs. a regular space, and change the config file.  Worst Upgrade Ever.  Now I have to do it on two more sites.
