As paramstyle is currently an attribute of the module perhaps it could 
be inherited by the connection. That way the user (if the module allows) 
could set the paramstyle on their connection to one of the available 
options. If the module only supports a single paramstyle then changing 
the attribute on the connection would have no effect.
