Thanks, Michael.  I suppose we need to document our lack of CS_SERVERADDR, at least until it's implemented.  

How does DBD::Sybase determine that the underlying ct-lib supports CS_SERVERADDR?  Is ther some kind of capability/version information we're supposed to return, so that you know we're a pre-12.5.1 library?
