in reply to New twist for DBD::mysql

Excellent! ++ for the news. I'm looking forward to true preprared queries.

Now, will this replace the current DBD::mysql or will it be an option when you install DBD::mysql, auto-detecting which version of the client library you have and asking only if you have both? I would seriously hope that this distribution doesn't fork based on client library ...

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

    DBD::mysql will support server-side, regualar prepare, embedded, and non-embedded all in one distribution. Athough the embedded non-embedded pair might be "forked" within the same distribution so that they can be in different namespaces allowing you to install both on the same system.
