Probably not. If you notice the version number for MySQL Proxy still 
starts with a "0." which the universally accepted indicator that it is 
of pre-production quality.  Thanks to the corporate changes of the last 
few years, the sole developer has been too busy doing his primary job to 
really put any more time into the project and no person or group from 
the community has stepped forward to help push the project to a final 
deliverable state.

Now, with that in mind, we do use the very same Proxy code as the 
critical component to the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent that is used to 
collect QUery ANalysis data (QUAN).  The difference here is that we 
wrote the script it executes and stress tested it in our labs to prove 
to our satisfaction that it will operate exactly as we wanted it to.

The 'master/slave write/read splitting' sample code on the Proxy site 
has NOT been through such rigorous testing. It was provided merely as a 
sample on which other, more robust, scripts could be constructed and as 
a demonstration of some of the possible uses of MySQL Proxy. You are 
more than encouraged to take this as a starting point, adjust it to 
match your execution environment and coding styles, then test it in your 
lab environment. Once it passes your internal quality review checks, 
then you should have the confidence to push it into production.

In conclusion, I am not at all surprised that the population of people 
on this list who has either written code for or used MySQL Proxy in 
production situations may be very small or none.
