According to <http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2002/10/01/hashes.html>, the
algorithm Memcached.pm uses is the one Perl 5.005 used, but it changed
with 5.61, IIRC. I don't know of any way to use it yourself, however.
Speaking of similar languages, Ruby exposes its hashing function as the
'hash' method of the Object class, so the Ruby client lib for memcache
I've been working on by default just does the equivalent of:
key.hash % buckets.nitems
