I guess I did "the right thing" on MySQLdb: Create a native interface
(_mysql) with a Python DB API wrapper (MySQLdb). It turned out to be very
easy to convert the old ZMySQLDA (using MySQLmodule-1.4) to use _mysql,
and MySQLmodule and _mysql are quite dissimilar.
It might be worth pointing out (not to AMK or MAL, they know this) that
Solid's native interface is ODBC.
