ZMySQLDA/MySQLdb: DON'T fix like this for Zope 2.7.0!

transactional = self.db.server_capabilities & CLIENT.TRANSACTIONS


This is NOT a good fix. All you're doing is ignoring the server's capabilities,
so if the server supports transactions and the client doesn't, or vice versa,
you end up in a mess.

I have a patch which I'm testing and will post soon. file from ZmySQLDA is requirement for python 2.3.3 based
zope to work.
I think the idea is that you're supposed to use mysql-python 0.9.3b2 with Python
2.3, but there's no Windows binary for that.
Can anyone explain to me why "_mysql" (instead of "MySQLdb") is used
here in the first place ?

Andy Dustman recommends against it for years now.

Well, ZMySQLDA is Andy's code, so perhaps he could comment? ;-)
