Sorry for the cross-post from the deploy list.

I asked my hosting service whether they were using the native ruby mysql
driver or the compiled version and they responded with "We use Ruby
gems".  Does that mean they use the native ruby driver?  I don't know
enough about the architecture to know whether the gem is the driver, or
just the api to the driver.

From that response they are using the compiled version, not the native
mysql driver.  Which, from what I understand, is faster.
