[wp-hackers] Alternative DB lib for load balancing

Looking for some specific code:
There is, or was, a drop-in database lib tool for WordPress that can
allow a site to have multiple read/write database servers.
If I recall correctly this was developed years ago in the earlier days
of WP.org and I believe this was built and made available as open source
to by Automattic.
Basically what it does is the you configure the site so the any number
of database servers can be used for ultra high traffic scenarios, and
each DB server in the config can be set for reads or writes. Then when
WP needs to do a query it determines which server to send the request
to. Something like that.
Anyone know where that code is located?
