That's the general idea, though I think there is room for improvement in
the API. Did you catch the note:

The MySQL module makes the MySQL <> database
available in JavaScript. This module has been tested with MySQL
version 5.0. If you use another version, and you encounter problems,
you can try to rebuild this module with your MySQL version.

Can you imagine working on a database system without even lip service to
API compatibility from version to version? Yuck!
