I advise against using MySQL-python-1.0.0; use 1.2.0 instead.

There are probably two issues here. One is that MySQL's API function
that returns the character set actually returns the collation. I've
previously reported this as a bug, but it may be intentional; I need
to check the status of this. The other is that the default character
set for the MySQL server is latin1_swedish (with latin1_swedish_ci
collation). I expect that this is probably not what you want. If you
have administrative control over the server, configure it to use the
character set you want; I recommend utf8.

Computer interfaces should never be made of meat.
