Asking a question involving MySQLdb (while obviously it uses MySQL), is not quite the same as asking a question that is about MySQL. This question in particular really has nothing to do with MySQL in particular, but has everything to do with MySQLdb. If anything, it should be a tag synonym of mysql-python, as that is the "proper" name of the package (though it's largely referred to as just "MySQLdb").
What is meta?

The old synonym has been removed, it was an over-generalization and incorrect.
I can't undo the renames so easily because the retagged questions are mixed in with all other legitimate mysql related questions, but all future renames will be more correct.
