If you can't find anything else... I have some scripts that connect  
to MySQL using an FFI module that I downloaded from somewhere I can't  
remember.  The file is libmysqlclient.ss, and if you want I can email  
it to you.  It has been working fine for scripts that run for 30  
seconds.  I read the docs for the MySQL C API to know what functions  
to call.
