Yes, but that doubles the # of SQL statements.  And I actually have 
probably no more than 8 SQL statements in total (all prepared), so the 
issue is not the SQL but the connection.

Do you know of anything else in Apache that could handle this?  Anybody 
know what Tomcat is using at this point?

We'd like that feature as well (since like I say we have so few SQL 
statements), but that's a bummer if it's broken.  From the API it seems 
like it would work.
