P4DTI issue job002051

TitleMySQLdb version testing doesn't check for unicode support
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionWhen the replicator starts up, it checks the version of the Python MySQL interface module. ASCII-only P4DTI operation is fine with versions after 0.2.2, but Unicode support is only developed fully in later versions, and ideally needs version 1.2.1 or later. We should check for this in particular and issue an appropriate warning.
AnalysisResearched Unicode support in MySQLdb by looking through the sources and contacting the author.
Write a deprecated_unicode test function and add it to the MySQLdb_support table in mysqldb_support.py.
