The MySQLdb1 tree is still maintained and needed by packages like mythtv and 
pyrss, etc.

On the other hand, "moist" is designed to be a drop-in replacement of mysqldb 
but as its author states, "moist is not yet ready for prime-time, and there 
are likely to be some large structural changes in the near future", I don't 
think it a good idea to replace mysqldb with it at the moment.

Feel free to create a package for it, though I don't think it will be in 
[community] anytime soon, since its last commit was in 2012 (quite dead...), 
and popular packages should be in the AUR already :)
