This is necessary if you want to set connection options like compression or SSL encryption.
Recently I wanted to use DBAL with Mysqli driver and I noticed that there is no possibility to enable connection compression, which is done in mysqli by setting flags to mysqli::real_connect. DBAL Mysqli driver lacks support for setting any flag, so I decided to propose my change to add such possibility.
