The WordPress db class (wp-db) only uses mysql_* calls, However, There  
should be no reason why a MySQLi based wp-db class couldnt be createed and  
used by those who want it.
(For reference: wp-config/db.php will be loaded in favour of  
wp-includes/wp-db.php if it exists, Just make sure to have all the same  
functions and whatnot in there :))
