Just fyi, mysqli_real_connect is not the function he really needs,
everything is already set up to do what he wants, its just a matter of
passing a client flag to mysql_connect on the PHP side, which actually
calls (for any PHP compiled with mysql libraries newer than 3.2.x)
mysql_real_connect on the C side, which passes the flag he wants, so
for this task mysqli is not a necessity.

Not to say it shouldn't be considered at some time, however.
