Yeah, I thought as much. I think if I was creating an application to
be distributed open-source on the Internet it'd make life easier
for other developers if it used something like the PEAR-DB class, but
when you're building your own/companies site and know the environment
it lessens the value somewhat.

It's still nice for all of the other reasons I mentioned.
