    The main web site for MySQLdb says it is only supported through Python 2.5.


"MySQL support for Python. MySQL versions 3.23-5.1; and Python versions 2.3-2.5 
are supported."

There does seem to be a 2.6 download for Linux, but the SourceForge download
for Windows is for Python 2.5.  Maybe the 2.6 version, with a "c1" suffix,
is an unsupported release candidate.
