Is there any advantage to using mysqli over mysql due to the abstraction layer?

Before CI, I used mysqli and just loved it for its nice little Object setup and way of doing things, but does it really have any purpose since it is being used within an abstraction layer that is based off of objects anyways?

Don't dump topic if there is no urgency.

What?

I had waited two days and it was off the front page. Figured I give it one more go around. (Atleast I assume you were talking about bumping threads).

The mysqli methods should be faster than the mysql methods. I don't know how much performance you gain but every bit counts, not?
