When I started using Python I though the "while 1" idiom was horrible.
Now I think it is quite Pythonic. Few months can change your mind! ;)
You may also use this form, which you may find more readable:
info = mydbcursor.fetchone()
if not info: break
print "Information: "+str(info)
Remember, 'info' is another spelling of True!
This is a trick anyway, and I always use "while 1" in my code, it is
the idiomatic way at the end.
