In https://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-python/en/connector-python-example-ddl.html,
there is 
    cnx.database = DB_NAME  
except mysql.connector.Error as err:
to handle exception.
But if you don't set use_pure=True, you can't catch the exception .
As i see, it's c extension, and used 
"from _mysql_connector import MySQLInterfaceError"
they are different Errors,  so the example won't work correctly.

How to repeat:
just copy the code, then it won't work.

Suggested fix:
combine them together or add comment not to confusing reader.

Hello david,

Thank you for the bug report.
Verified this behavior on Python 3.6 & MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.11.

use_pure=true|false should have the same behavior, so changing this to a development bug
