It should be completely transparent (well, provided you're not using the 
new in-CVS feature of unbuffered queries).  With no drawbacks, and a fair 
advantage, it's a better way to go than establish a new link.
The current implementation suffers from a limitation, in which closing one 
of the links will invalidate all of the handles that point to that 
link.  It's a bug, though, and I intend to fix it for 4.0.6.
