Why not use the PDO extensions instead? That's what we do, so we don't do any direct mysql calls.

PDO was introduced only with PHP 5. PDO would not work in older PHP versions. That is why the mysql extension always remain more popular and most developers took it as the way to go to access MySQL databases.
