Most likely. Especially if you're not using a threaded mpm (worker,
event) or going not to make use threads in your code.

I think DBI seems to be making progress on CLONE() ing $dbh handles, at
least from the test results I got/saw over on dbi-dev (at) perl (dot)
org for the 1.51-RC1 just posted. Its docs still say not to use DBI
with ithread enabled perl in production, so I'd go with that recommendation.
