This was my point though:  I found the *description* - but no wordon
WHICH implementation to get WHERE ?
Don't get me wrong - I like Python and I will stick to it for some time
to come ...
but WHY are the places to get those SQL implementations not better
Just try to google for "python sql"  and you get here:
(then this like to home page (http://pysqldb.sourceforge.net/)  is
the next number of hits seem to be completely random.

Even if you google for: python mysql
you get to http://sourceforge.net/projects/mysql-python  where
the linked "home page" says:
** OBSOLETE Python Interface to MySQL **

Please try to understand what I'm saying here:
This is essentially a proof the there is no (one) good place to go for
SQL & Python.
Instead it looked really scary to me!
How could I have known that "MySQLdb" is the keyword to google for !?

It would be nice, if those projects would reference back to
"http://www.python.org/topics/database/modules.html" just to give some
assurance that one is not totally off ...
