We've written 2 alternative perl clients:
is a dropin replacement for the Danga 1.0 series. It works the same and is
100% perl, but the code is cleaner. get()s are twice as fast if I recall
correctly. Other commands are comparable or a little slower, but we haven't
really optimised those.
Thisone is completly in C and get()s are, what, 10 times as fast? The
API is a subset of the normal client, but normal get/get_multi/sets are
