[Zope-DB] using mxODBC and mySQL to connect with Zope

I already have ZMySQLDA installed and I have it working. But, I needed
to install mxODBC to connect with my SQL server. I understand that
mxODBC handles MySQL as well so I feel like I should just use mxODBC and
kill two birds with one stone instead of having multiple database
connectors. If mxODBC can handle all of my databases then I should just
use mxODBC.

IMO, you don't want to use ODBC to connect to mysql (it's one of those
why bother thingies) no need. (ZMySQLDA)
