Are you sure about that?

I mean, would a MySQL developer that added a function notice 
that such function doesn't exist in the PySQL module? As far as I 
understand, the code should be modular in the sense that it loads only 
the right module suitable for the right database type, so for example 
only the Mysql one will be looked upon. The lack of function in the 
other modules will go unnoticed until someone using PySQL will see an error.
