Currently PDO::errorInfo returns an array (SQLSTATE, driver specific code, message) but almost ever only the message is interesting. Therefore I propose to expand the API to add an obtional array index, if present only the indexed information will be returned. The return type probably has to be changed to mixed as well.

Current calls without parameter return the current array, future calls i.e. errorInfo (2) will only return the text message as a string.
