I don't have to deal with MySQL frequently but I've remembered that I
used got the fields out somehow, and now, looking at the code, I wonder
myself, why "how" is 1 and wtf is this "how", anyway!? ;)

I can't seem to find any mention of such methods in documentation and
even python source, guess they are implemented directly in underlying
C lib.
Hope I learned to abstract from such syntax since then, I sure do...
