Description:
When porting code from MySQLdb to mysql.connector:
"AttributeError: Unsupported argument 'read_default_file'"

The reason was this:
c = mysql.connector.connect(read_default_file='foo.cnf')

How to repeat:
See description

Suggested fix:
Let read_default_file be an alias for option_files to make mysql.connector more compatible with MySQLdb.
