I dunno which DBMS support prepare without a database connection, but I would expect all the mainstream databases to require a database connection.


I'm also far from convinced that there's any significant benefit in separating the 'create a database handle' from the 'connect to database server' part.


Not to mention the effect, that one major charm of DBI is its simplicity: Connect, Execute for updates, inserts, or deletes and Connect, Execute, Fetch for select. I can't see an advantage in overly extending the interface.
