[nycphp-talk] if you were teaching PHP...

I wonder if any of y'all care to opine about this:

If you were teaching an introductory PHP course (no previous programming
experience required) and you intended to cover some MySQL, would you teach
the "classic" procedural mysql_xxxx API, mysqli, PEAR::DB, or some
combination of the above?

I taught this class last semester and spent some time on mysql_xxx,
followed by PEAR::DB, but next time around I am tempted to require my
victims to run MySQL 4.1 and learn about mysqli.

Gratefully,
