Unable to extend the PDO class because __construct is final.

Reproduce code:
class MyPDO extends PDO

   function __construct($dsn, $user, $pass)
      parent::__construct($dsn, $user, $pass);


$PDO = new MyPDO($dsn, $user, $pass);

Expected result:
I would expect to be able to extend PDO. I realize that this 
is intended behavior to avoid a SEGV, but I think that there 
are legitimate reasons why people would want to extend PDO. Is 
it possible to address this a different way?

Actual result:
Fatal error: Cannot override final method PDO::__construct() 
in myfile on line myline
