The future of WPDB | Marko Heijnen
Lately I’m busy with exploring the future of WPDB. Ticket number #21663 on Trac has a lot of discussions and Kurt Payne started with redoing the code.

Excellent thoughts from Marko on the impending removal of mysql_*() from PHP and what it means for how WordPress (and its plugins) interact with MySQL.
