In other languages, there is often a parameter on the connection handle
saying whether (the analogue of) a prepare+execute call should be only a
parameter substitution or a full prepared statement.  I think this is
due to the historical confusion between these aspects and therefore not
a good idea for a new API.  In Python, adding an explicit prepare
function and having that actually prepare in all cases sounds like a
decent idea to me.
