MogileFS is *not* meant to be a regular filesystem. It's not POSIX
compliant. There's no random access within a file. The HTTP overhead
that MogileFS incurs is trivial given its design goals and intended
purpose. Memcached is not a database, or a DLM. These are custom tools
that were built to fulfill particular needs, and you're trying to bend
them out of shape to do something they aren't meant to.
