Take into replacements in query being duplicate

Please note the validation of query parameters in the previous patch would not allow for duplicates replacements from a single key in a dictionary. There are many cases where this could be useful, but one example:

INSERT INTO `table_name` SET `colum1`= %(column1)s,  `colum2`= %(column2)sON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE SET `colum1`= %(column1)s;

data = dict(column1="testdata1", column2="testdata2")

In this case the replacements(3) would not equal the count of keys, but would be valid.

I've added a new patch file and checked if len(set(query_replacement_keys)) != len(params) and also check for KeyError on replacement in case the dictionary does not define one of the parameters.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.32 release, and here's the proposed changelog entry from the documentation team:

Enable the use of dictionaries as parameters in prepared statements using
the '%(param)s' format as placeholders. 

Thanks to Luke Weber for the contribution.

Thank you for the bug report.
