MySQL 5.0 works fine with php5-mysql, it's a myth that you need the
mysqli API to interact with a MySQL 5.0 server.  That said, I could look
at getting a feature freeze exception to add mysqli as, to be honest, I
pretty much "just forgot" to turn it on when we switched to using the
MySQL 5.0 libraries with PHP (it couldn't be used at all when we used
the older libraries)
