Oh brother, it looks like initialize() don't exist too...

 >>> con=MySQLdb.connection(passwd="XXXXXXXX",user="esf",db="maze_bs")
 >>> curs=con.cursor()
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: cursor
 >>> curs=con.initialize()
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: initialize
