I would say that comparing DBI to ADODB is more appropriate; PHP more or
less directly calls the mysql C library functions whereas PERL actually
does some additional work in there. In PERL's case, its probably a
similar code distance to just do a single executed query and return an
array of results as it is in PHP though. I'd benchmark it to be sure
