Hmm...  Upon further thought, that line will need tweaking because in 
testing and edge cases, the database connection may get changed.  So, 
perhaps something like this:

 function get_db_server_version() {
   static $version, $prior_active_db;
   if (isset($version) && isset($prior_active_db) && $prior_active_db == $GLOBALS['active_db']) {
     return $version;
   $prior_active_db = $GLOBALS['active_db'];
