No, if you want to use MySql or Postgres to maintain the game database
you require these Python database modules whether it is via the GUI or
via Python. If you build without Python, Mysql and Postgres are unavailable.

Our C code actually calls Python modules to do the database work for
Mysql and Postgres.

I looked at py-mysql and it seems to be a direct replacement for
py-pymysql as it says it is Mysqldb compatible. One is pure python and
the other is not.

If we are already building with Python support these requirements do not
seem to be overly onerous IMHO. I think in the future you will probably
see more mixture of Python and C code where Python may be a requirement
(and not optional). about half a year ago a couple of the developers
(myself included) suggested this might be part of the future of our product.
