What rdb adapter should I use on Zope 2: Zope 2 or Zope 3?

We are about to start developing a Zope application that will rely 
heavily on Mysql. It will run on Zope 2 in a corner of a Plone site.

We plan to use as much Zope 3 tech as we can through Five -- views, 
utilities, adapters. Now, should we use the Zope 3 Mysql adapter as 
well? Or just stick with the good old Zope 2 adapter?

As I understand it the purpose of the Zope rdb-adapters is to let 
SQL-connectivity play nice with Zope threads and transactions. But does 
the Zope 3 rdb adapters "know" how to hook properly into the Zope 2
