Good point. And sorry for that. I was about to write "hey folks" and
wanted to sound a bit more polite. It was not my intention to miss out
our female contributors, of which I'm proud we have them.

Well, either we keep MySQL (not MySQLi) for 6.1. Going straight for PDO
might imho not be a too easy task "now". Or we could go this way to
already make the move to MySQLi now - if we maybe later access it via
PDO or through a doctrine-layer or so is a different subject imho.

The MySQLi-function are quite identical and behave almost identical to
the ones from MySQL. So that's why I think that even at this point in
time it might be a possible way.

Kind regards,
