The OPTIONS attribute in the DSN is a bunch of bit flags, which are confusing to set manually, and results in magical numbers in application code with explicit SQLDriverConnect() calls.

How to repeat:
Use the OPTIONS attribute.

Suggested fix:
Replace with individual named options. Support OPTIONS for backwards compatibility.
