Not precisely true.
See this pseudo-code:
$first_server = new Memcache(...);
$second_server = new Memcache(...);
$third_server = new Memcache(...);
$fourth_server = new Memcache(...);
Nothing prevents you from using as much servers as you want in the same time.
I'm a strong believer that it's better to write couple of lines in PHP and have 100% flexible API then
to hardcode some logics into the extension and have to work around it every time to get the desired behaviour.

I'm just curious: besides this "multi-serverness" what are the additional features it offers?
Comparing to http://php.net/memcache, of course.
