As far as I can tell, this is emulated statement preparation (in
MySQL) and does not actually prepare the statement, just like with
PEAR:DB. It's not a fault of the library, but a fault of MySQL.
According to this, though, MySQL 4.1+ has some support for prepared
statements: http://www.php-editors.com/mysql_manual/p_manual_Clients.html
