I should also say that in the current (2.08 and before) implementation,
the $dbh parameter passed to an error or message callback is a
non-blessed reference to a hash, so you can do things like
$string = Sybase::DBlib::dbstrcpy($dbh);
$string = $dbh->dbstrcpy
in a message handler, and the attributes are not available.
