Python and zope is supported for MySQL Cluster in the same way as for 
other MySQL storage engines.
At the moment there is no fail-over support from a Python or Zope 
client to several MySQL servers but it
is very straightforward to accomplish with a small amount of 
programming. Connector/J has support for
this fail-over so far and other MySQL clients will get it eventually.
