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