you've already fixed this)

Hi All,

Right, firstup, the "correct" way to fix this would appear to be to move to 
mysql-python 0.9.3b3 and ZMySQLDA 2.0.9b2.

Sadly, no Windows binary is (yet?) available for mysql-python 0.9.3b3, and some 
people may be reluctant to use tests releases. So people end up getting 
AttributeError's on server_capabilities ;-)

The attached patch to ZMySQLDA's db.py appears to fix this for me.
Please give it a go and let me know how you fare...
