Clearly, you'd need to be able to control the prepared statement name to
use such a feature.

Given that we're talking about what sounds like a new feature in the
JDBC driver, I don't see why you wouldn't also make that a requirement
of the feature..?  Or have the JDBC driver calculate a unique ID for
each statement using a good hash, perhaps?

Note: I don't pretend to have any clue as to the internals of the JDBC
driver, but it hardly seems far-fetched to have this be supported in a
way that works.
