There's always -somebody- who uses the worker MPM on !Win32.

I don't use 'em either, I just like to support them anyway.

I -think- you could probably cargo-cult tests for this as well.

Well, that would make prepare_cached not dangerous where your DB supports
it appropriately - it only currently works for CDBI because the sth is fully
used and then thrown away every time.

But a global flag to say "look, just don't use prepare_cached" would also
be nice - the problem is that the choice is set at ->set_sql time so if your
superclass (whether CDBI or otherwise) says "yes" you have absolutely no
way to change your mind in a subclass, which is a complete pain.
