Also, note that PDO::getAttribute() wont show you PDO::ATTR_EMULATE_PREPARES as it has not been implemented in the get() handler for pdo_mysql driver, referer here : http://lxr.php.net/xref/PHP_5_4/ext/pdo_mysql/mysql_driver.c#417
However, PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_DIRECT_QUERY has been

Interesting, I stumbled upon this topic today and will be documenting it. 
And nice MYSQL_ATTR_DIRECT_QUERY tip, I'll steal that... :)
