Well, it appears there is someone who has looked at it:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pymysql/. But this project
doesn't appears to be very active.
I think the main issue is going to be compatibility with new
versions of the backend when the c/s protocol changes. A type 4
driver should be part of the database codebase and distribution,
unless the c/s protocol is frozen and well documented.
