PyMySQL is a pure Python MySQL driver implementation, which aims to be mostly compatible with MySQLdb (with the exception of bugs). It currently works on Python 2.4+, including support for Python 3. I have contributed bug fixes and feature additions, including support for SSCursor, which is an unbuffered cursor object that uses very little memory on large queries. I have another round of bug fixes and feature additions planned, once I get time to work in it more.
