I haven't yet added Andy Dustman's MySQLdb module to the database
topic guide.  Can someone clarify the situation with the three MySQL
modules?  There's James Henstridge's mySQLmodule; the copy on
python.org is dated 09-Oct-1997, so it's probably unmaintained.  
There's Joerg Senekowitsch's MySQLmodule, dated 28-Dec-1998, so it's
probably still maintained, and there's Andy Dustman's module,
announced earlier this module.

	Which ones should be listed in the topic guide?  I think it's
OK to drop the Henstridge one; does the Dustman code supersede the
Senekowitsch module?  Authors, can you clarify this?

of humans. In which no cats are killed by human caprice. A world that we rule.
