    It's a non-trivial port.  There's a release candidate for Python 2.6;
see

https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=672239

but that was back in March and hasn't advanced since then.

There's an unofficial port of MySQLdb to
Python 2.6 for Windows.  See

https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=3108914&forum_id=70460

The MySQLdb developer says that conversion to 3.0 is hard, and he's busy
doing other things.
