I don't really like the double info assignment, but I've thought it
over a bit, and I like this better than the

while True
	info = mydbcursor.fetchone()
	if not info:
		break

construction. In the upper solution the "while info" makes the loop
condition very clear. The lower solution is less clear in that, but
doesn't have the double assignment.
