Be sure to have multiple get methods. Memcache#get() returns just the
key in a scalar form. Memcache#get_a() returns a parallel array to
what you put in as arguments with nil filled in at the appropriate
array index. Memcache#get_h() returns a hash of key->value pairs.
Since arrays and hashes are the same in PHP, you probably want to have
a get() method, and a get_array() method. Having to deal with arrays
if you only want one value is a huge PITA. -sc
