You might be wrong. I seem to recall using placeholders with DBD::Sybase
against both MS-SQL and Sybase servers back in 1999. The prepared
statements might not have been cached at the time (saved optimizer
analysis, etc.) other than the last prepared statement (good for repeated
queries or inserts, for example). But it was so long ago, it might have
been from another life.

                                things can go wrong at once.
