$wpdb->prepare() takes a sprintf style SQL statement, 
eg: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4553
$wpdb->query($wpdb->prepare("UPDATE $wpdb->options SET option_value = %s WHERE option_name = %s", $newvalue, $option_name));

So the SQL statement passed in can be mangled however you alternate db lovers want without ever having to touch the raw data being queried.
the prepare() was introduced in 2.3 code, Most of the WP code is being altered to make use of it AFAIK for 2.4.
