I have read your opinions, and I must say that they all make sense!

I vote for merging the new patch for a delayed 2.6.0-rc1. First I was thinking that
we are late in 2.6.0 cycle, but now I think:

- people that need mysqli already have 2.6.0-alpha1, or the daily snapshot
- for a 2.6.0 release, maybe it's important to have a new look. Most users do not
even have the server infrastructure to benefit from our mysqli support, so the main thing
they will notice is the look :)

However I am concerned about the size of this patch. I have some time to devote to this
and I hope other devs also have some time. Fortunately, Michael seems motivated and will surely
cooperate to help on this.
