I'd be happy with that.

Just don't use the memcached API directly... make a little stub
indirection layer in MogileFS::Util or wherever, so you can work (by doing
nothing) if Cache::Memcached isn't installed.  (but if you start it up
with --use-memcached, then be a fatal error if they don't have
Cache::Memcached installed...)
