Description:
In MySQL 5.1, a bunch of things were deprecated and then removed in 5.2.5. One of these was the table_type system variable (has been superseded by the storage_engine) system variable.

There is a related --default-table-type option, which is deprecated in favor of the --default-storage-engine option.  Given that table_type was removed, I suggest that --default-table-type should be removed as well.

Here's the cset for the removed constructs:

ChangeSet@1.2469.259.1, 2007-05-05 13:03:19-07:00, serg@sergbook.mysql.com +71 -0
  Removing deprecated features:
  --master-XXX command-line options
  log_bin_trust_routine_creators
  table_type
  BACKUP TABLE ...
  RESTORE TABLE ...
  SHOW PLUGIN
  LOAD TABLE ... FROM MASTER
  LOAD DATA FROM MASTER  SHOW INNODB STATUS
  SHOW MUTEX STATUS
  SHOW TABLE TYPES
  ... TIMESTAMP(N)
  ... TYPE=engine
