Dear Michael,

Thank you. Therefore, it might be better to remove python variant and to depend 
on python by default. It is an implicit preparation for future gnubg, and as 
you pointed, it is not a heavy burden for most people; the dependence on python 
may be almost always satisfied.

By the way, is it possible to show a message like "pymysql or MySQLdb is 
required to connect to MySQL database" when a user tries to use MySQL without 
installing an appropriate python module? It would be helpful not only for 
macports people but also many other users.
Thank you very much.

Daisuke Takahashi
