Both returned generally the same information:

STAT pid 26043
STAT uptime 504686
STAT time 1104173049
STAT version 1.1.11
STAT rusage_user 1:120000
STAT rusage_system 1:740000
STAT curr_items 0
STAT total_items 0
STAT bytes 0
STAT curr_connections 1
STAT total_connections 52
STAT connection_structures 2
STAT cmd_get 0
STAT cmd_set 0
STAT get_hits 0
STAT get_misses 0
STAT bytes_read 1107
STAT bytes_written 21816
STAT limit_maxbytes 1073741824

I notice the 0's are still there at the memcached level so it's not the 
PECL packages fault, that's good... and bad.

What the heck is rusage by the way?
