hi I am converting code written for the old mysql interface that makes
extensive use of the fetchdict() method.

I would like to continue using this as it makes reduces code errors for
many case. The problem that I have is that there does not seem to be
enough information provided by the api to implement this is a reliable

Any suggestions n how to do this. I had intended to use the information
provided in cursor.description but for some reason this does not provide
the name of the table therefore can not be used.
