Do you use replication?
Any way you could have some of the load go to a primary and some other go to 
a slave?

Although most of our mysql load goes to a single machine we have, when 
possible, tried to distribute some of the load between the master and a 
slave we run.

In particular postfix was one that was easy to do this on.

We also have modified some of our PHP code to go to the master for write, 
but to either master/slave for reads. Helps not only with speed, but with 
reliability too.
