I fixed the NULL blob thing in the main mysql-native's master a few
weeks ago. I'll take a look at the rest.

That would indeed be more flexible, but I'm not sure I can imagine a
reason to ever use anything besides phobos connections and vibe.d
connections (but maybe I'm wrong?). Plus, hopefully phobos connections
will eventually gain the ability to work like vibe.d connections and
obviate the need for vibe.d to have it's own connections. So I'm not
sure whether it would really be worth it.

I wasn't talking about using -version to switch between
implementations. Just to disable the dependency on vibe.d (which of
course would also disable the *option* of using vibe.d connections).
