I had debated this with myself before I put the ebuilds in. I came to
the conclusion that memcached is not a large package, and it compiles
It isn't too much of a big deal; I'll remove the depends.

The init scripts are in the image of Bash, so we can't use Perl.

This seems like a candidate for program enhancement:
memcached -d --servers 5 --mem 2048 =3D 5 servers at 2048MB each.
Mainly because I don't particularly relish the job of modifying the init
script. ;-) I'll see what I can do...
