Okay - I neglected to look at the [site-packages] directory itself.  Here I
do find [_mysql.pyd] full of binary code.  A MySQLdb related file that
doesn't seem to have a corresponding file with Python source code. Mea
culpa! This is on  MS Windows [C:\Python23].

But heck!  Now I'm looking at the /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages on a
Mandrake Linux box.  No [_mysql.] pyd here! Fewer files overall and while
there are other file extensions, everything seems to have a corresponding
[.py].

print MySQLdb.version_info
(0, 9, 2, 'final', 1)
