I'm worried about the impact of prepared statements not using the query
cache at all for older MySQL versions.

    7.5.4. The MySQL Query Cache

See the 5th paragraph (3rd "Note").

Beginning with 5.1.17 prepared statements use the query cache under
certain conditions as described in


Search for "prepared statements" to find the relevant section.

Beginning with 5.1.21 the cache is used in more cases.

I'm still running the 5.0 branch of MySQL, and many are probably
still stuck with 4.x.
