LiveCode SQL APIs

I can think a few way to construct a "keep-alive" process to ensure that 
a connection to a MySQL database via the LiveCode database drivers 
doesn't time out. However, it occurs to me that folks who spend more 
time writing LiveCode MySQL applications than I may have come up with a 
"best" way to keep the connection from timing out, so I thought I would 
ask the list. An idle loop would do it, but using idle is not a "best" 

Any "best" approaches out there that someone cares to share?
