I suppose that when I use adbapi.ConnectionPool('MySQLdb',...), I am
already using the MySQLdb adapter? It is straightforward to instruct
MySQLdb to use the DictCursor when programming in straight (i.e.
non-Twisted) environments, but how do I do the same from Twisted, using

Please let a novice Twisted-programmer know if I am completely missing
the mark here, and I will go back to my cave with my original solution.
I'm just trying to understand the intricacies of the Twisted APIs and
lingo/semantics, and doing things right the second time :)
