It's certainly good to know how long it takes to get a fresh connection and
consider whether you need persistent connections or not. Connecting tends
to be fast on MySQL and caching is probably not needed unless you're
running a very performance-sensitive site. The last time I worked with
Oracle, connections were too slow to run without caching them. That was
years ago though, and the situation may have improved.
