Django backend for mysql is not installed

The Django documentation https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/settings/#engine says that several backends are available with the Django distribution, including MySQL. However, when I specifying mysql as the backend Django dies during startup with the error that the backend is not available. On the web, multiple sites describe how to download MySQLdb and install. This backend should be in Django, or the documentation should instruct how to install it.
