I am parroting Ciarán here, but the problem with injection is when a  
string is taken from the user and just inserted into a query. E.g.  
SELECT * FROM table WHERE text = "$string" -- here the user would  
ensure that $string starts with "; and if multi-line queries is  
supported, can basically do whatever SQL command he desires.

It seems rather brutal to just cut-off the ability to do multi-line  
queries in the MySQL API, but apparently that’s what they decided.

That should work, I think r7187 is the last revision prior to the  
change. So use the following command to checkout that bundle:

     svn co http://macromates.com/svn/Bundles/trunk/Bundles/ 
SQL.tmbundle at 7187

There’s a lot of people who do want the multi-line query  
functionality back, and I used it as well, so presumably a solution  
will be found, but for now there is the old bundle for those who want  
it now.
