#2584 closed defect (worksforme)

no MySQL codepage select

Django works only with utf8 codepage in MySQL, it's great problem with using it in others codepages.
In django/db/backends/mysql/ hardcode defined MySQL codepage.

if self.connection.get_server_info() >= '4.1':
  cursor.execute("SET NAMES utf8")

There only one possibility to change it manualy. Other variant is to move this option out to as MYSQL_CODEPAGE or try to extract this data from DEFAULT_CHARSET, as it was recommended on local forum:

from django.config import settings
if self.connection.get_server_info() >= '4.1':
  cs = settings.DEFAULT_CHARSET.replace('-', '')
  cursor.execute("set character set %s" % cs)

Ohh, great, but we still haven't that path applied in SVN code. That defect was reported 9 month ago.
We've spend an hour to find this bug, and it would be very pleasant to apply it.
