What it is
"Moxy" is a Django database backend for MySQL. Built on top of MySQLdb  and Eventlet , it uses eventlet.db_pool to provide a greenthread-safe means of accessing MySQL via MySQLdb's blocking calls.
Another member of the
#eventlet channel on Freenode was soliciting for names
of a reverse proxying HTTP server he wrote built off of Eventlet. I suggested
the name "Moxy" which was well received until everybody started listing examples
of other projects named "Moxy".
Since then it's become a kind of lame inside joke to suggest "Moxy" as the name for any new project.
