Sorry, back from wedding + honeymoon + travel hell + calming down.

But yeah, I'd take such a patch, if it were off by default.  (no surprises
for existing users)  Or a sort of $memc->last_err might be more likable
based on the other replies I saw.  Not sure what the return values would
be... constants like ERR_CACHE_MISS / ERR_NO_SERVER ?

Either way, or both.  Get me a patch and I'll get it in the next release.
