mysqli support is needed, at last

I'm pretty upset with the lack of mysqli support in WP 2.0.4 and I'm really surprised that it is a more-than-2-years long issue that is marked as "wontfix" by the dev team.
My situation is that my host set up php5 with mysqli support (which, as you may know, prevents php from loading mysql extension) and now I'm stuck with a non-working WP installation.
I tried to run the MySQLi Conversion Tool which is found at http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Converting_to_MySQLi but - despite of a successful conversion - WP still says that php is lacking mysqli support.
I'm trying to work this out but I'm also considering switching to another platform.
