Is there something like pgpool for MySQL?

It seems like there ought to be, and it'd be tremendously useful, but I've never heard of one.

Have you looked at MySQL_Proxy?

That looks pretty nice. I'm most interested in the parallel query feature, and it's not clear if/how MySQL Proxy supports that, but it's certainly worth a look! – Ken Feb 3 '10 at 23:40
