Why not have one ZmySQLDA that attempts to determine whether it is 
transactional or not when the connect method is executed. That way you 
could have a DA connect to your 3.22 database, upgrade your database to 
>3.23.15 and not see any problems. A combination of try-except:ing an 
attempted "begin rollback" block and a test for database type should do 
the trick, no? If it's 3.22 or earlier, the begin-rollback should throw 
the synax error Andy mentioned. If that's ok, a test for database type 
(not sure about this one) to see if it's BDB? If all of this is wrapped 
in the connect method, we should be able to make it 'do the right thing' 

Thoughts?
