I don't much like the idea of having different code base for python2 and
python3 versions.

My current plan (unless anyone objects) is to replace the python-mysqldb
package with the mysqlclient package, keeping the existing python-mysqldb
(which makes sense as the python module name is unchanged).

My initial upload will be to experimental.
