I have made tests and the performance of a native driver are way ahead.

We have modified the MySQL driver version provided by Yxa. The modified
version will hopefully be integrated into the main Yxa code base if this
version works with a reasonnable scope of MySQL versions.

The new version can be downloaded for testing and feedback from: 

Tell us if this work for you.

There is a pending modification for transaction support with MySQL
