Yes, good: "has-a" and "is-a". In some cases, the distinction seems
clear. The think in this case, the class I'm implementing "has-a" PDO
driver, rather than "is-a" PDO driver. In this case, I'm encapsulting
the PDO classes within my class to provide removal of details from the
main program for dealing with data, which isn't particularly
interested in how that data is manipulated or stored.
