comment What does bootstrapping mean in the context of Laravel?
It could be named initialization, but bootstrapping isn't the bad word - for example Symfony2 contains bootstrap.php file inside app directory that contains compiled set of classes to speed up loading commonly used ones.

comment Building a DBAL from scratch
Like in any project, battle tested code wins with fresh one because it worked in many more situations than you even think of while writing yours. You're also getting updates, fixes and new features because somewhere is a team devoted to work on that library. Can you provide the same benefits in your code while maintaining applications that will use it?

comment Building a DBAL from scratch
If you're sure that you'll use only one (several) DB servers and you'll limit yourself to things that PDO provides, go write one. But can you be sure that this will happen and will you support your library with security fixes and so on? For learning purposes - go do it, for any real application use estabilished solution (Doctrine DBAL beign the most prominent).
