Unless you have direct evidence to the contrary people should take what you
wrote with a grain of salt.  In my experience Andy Dustman has been quite
responsive to inputs about MySQLdb, when those inputs happen in the forum he
inhabits.  That forum is the MySQL forum tool on SourceForge:

If you're curious about MySQLdb on Python 3.0 that is the place to ask.  Of
course, like all open source software if you provide a patch in the project
tracker things will happen faster.
