This issue is to track what methods all dbms have in common and might go into an interface that could be used by other components such as data providers and widgets.

interface ConnectionInterface
    public function open();
    public function close();
    public function getIsActive();
    public function getDriverName();
    // transactions are not supported by all dbms

I strongly support this, had a separate issue creation in today's work plan ;)

Yii2 has great advantage - it dropped JOINs and so can do relations in non-relational and No-SQL storages.

I vote for extraction of database-related classes into separate sub-modules with well-defined "super-interface" (set of interfaces) with all and every method and setting overridable and/or configurable from application config. PDO/MySQL implementation of the super-interface by core team should be just a partial case.

This way, anyone will be able to implement connection to their storage, be it traditional SQL, SQL-like with gotchas via PDO (my case, Apache Cassandra), key-value REST or RPC, remote service as data source with caching, or even mix of all with cross-relations.

For extra points, please see #882, comments for @ef13a11, #885 (offtopic for configuration/instantiation),
