<informal_answer>Though at the moment, via libmemcache(3), I've got 
server lists stored in a shared memory segment and can modify the 
server list for an entire host from the command line.  I haven't had 
too much time to play with this yet, but I think that's going to be the 
future for client libraries: having a global server list that's 
maintained outside of the application.</informal_answer>  -sc
