Howdy.  memcache(3) is available for use.  1.2.0 had a last-minute 
brain-o wherein I was forgetting to free(3) a string after strdup()'ing 

The one gotcha that does exist in this release is that it doesn't build 
with the latest version of pmk.  If you've got 0.8.2, don't upgrade to 
0.9.0.  pmk 0.9.0 doesn't grok comments, amongst other problems.  I'm 
hoping 0.9.1 will be cut shortly to address this.  As for other 
changes, it's pretty light from 1.2.0.

*) Fixed memory leak from mc[m]?_req_add().
*) Buffers are now contained on a per-server basis, not per struct 
memcache basis
*) A void *misc pointer was added to struct memcache_res and struct 
*) Format fixes for compatibility to get around brain-o's in various 
OSes regarding size_t

Let me know if anyone has any problems with this release.  -sc
