No, DBD::mysql & DBI are enough, however using
Apache::DBI ( before you "use DBI" ) can help with
performance.  MySQL has fast connect speeds, so it
may not matter much... other databases like Oracle have
really slow connect speeds so Apache::DBI is really
important to use there for database connect caching.
