Generally speaking, I think I prefer methods to read-only attributes.
The Db-API interface of MySQLdb is written in Python, and I'd rather not
have to deal with __setattr__/__getattr__ hooks if I don't have to. Plus
it is arguably better practice for a user interface.

Similar, why not cursor.messages(), which returns a list of messages
generates, and clears the list, and the same for connection.messages().
