Yes but there is no Windows version linked against MySQL-5.0. All the
Windows builds are user-contributed, and so until someone contributes
one, you're out of luck. MySQL-python.exe-1.2.0.win32-py2.4.zip is for
Python-2.4 and MySQL-4.1.9. If someone wants to contribute one, let me
know off-list.
The Pythonic Principle: Python works the way it does
because if it didn't, it wouldn't be Python.
