I'd be upgrading the software to use the Perl DBI methods instead.

Then when you switch to a proper DBMS you won't have to rewrite much,  
unless you are unwittingly using MySQL-specific commands (anything  
containing "ISAM") or MySQL-isms (such as assuming that any column  
named "updated_on" will be automatically set to the current time when  
the row is updated).
