I've already made the switch to mysqli, and it was a bit of a PITA. IMO, this move can only be justified if there are drop in replacements for each of the mysql functions. I had to write all kinds of replacement functions and sql queries to extend the functionality of mysqli to match that of mysql. If we are going to do this, we to make it easy on developers.
