MySQL documentation needs to note lack of support for timezone info...

The current (5.1.50) version of MySQL has no support for timezone information in date fields. Python does and an attempt to write a models.DateTimeField that contains timezone information fails and throws a ValueError('MySQL backend does not support timezone-aware datetimes.',).
All I'm suggesting is that the documentation at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/ref/databases/#notes-on-specific-fields makes note of this.
