at this time there is no such option. The benefit of dlopen()ing the  
drivers instead of linking them in is that you don't have to recompile  
libdbi in order to install drivers. This makes it convenient for  
package or port systems to ship individual drivers separately from the  
library. I can't judge though whether your idea is technically feasible.
