[IronPython] How to install 3rd part packages into IronPython ?

  If I may humbly suggest:  don't use mySQLdb.
works very well with IronPython, thank you, and is also fully db api
2.0 compliant.  mySQL is one of the three database engines, along with
ACCESS (jet) and MS-SQL which I use to test it.
  For IronPython it uses the dumbest possible installation method: unzip the
package and copy it to the site-packages folder of your choice.  The
examples in the 'tests' sub-directory contain a working mySQL
connection string for a sample.
  If there are features of mySQLdb which you feel are lacking in adodbapi,
please let me know and I will see if they can be added.

P.S.: The new release of IPy has uncovered a bug in Decimal and binary data
types. I have a fix, and if all tests pass I'll upload a new version later
today or tomorrow.  It will be version 2.3.0 with some significant new
features (like switchable paramstyle.)
