For long-running PHP script with database connections it would be nice if the database driver automatically reconnects in case of a server/network timeout.

This could be integrated with a reconnect flag for PDO. 

At least in libmysqlclient >= 5.0.13 MYSQL_OPT_RECONNECT is available.

Doing this in the driver level means that your application will "suddenly" loose its state (transactions, temp table, session vars, probably including encoding settings, ...) this is fine for vhost configuration as there's not much state, in an application it's better to do it inside an database wrapper and react properly.
