General procedure without really knowing too much about the drivers ;-) : either
- try running coverage, to see which of them gets executed (probably
too slow, too much work)
- look at both versions to spot some differences in e.g. private
method names and check it in your code.
- try induce some exception in the mysql code and check the stack trace.
- examine caller() inside a block called from some mysql stuff
- the easiest one: look for some VERSION constant or similar thing.
