Unless you're totally married to MySQL, you may want to consider using 
one of the embeddable databases for Python, such as Sleepycat's 
Berkeley, Metakit, PySQLite, Kinterbase, etc.  I've used Berkeley, 
Metakit and PySQLite, and they're all very good, each serving somewhat 
different needs.  Shouldn't be too much effort to pull the data out of 
MySQL and into something else.
