Suggestion for future version of memcached?

just randomly think of some suggestions for next version of memecached

1. namespace support, so we can

a. delete the whole namespace
b. list all elements in the namespace
c. allocate different size to the namespace, such as 100MB to A, 200MB
to B, so we can have a better control on the utilization.

2. support standard file operations, so we can use standard file
system call to write & read the data, where in some language,
memcached api is not available, e.g. VBS. on the other hand, this can
be a NFS running on memory,

any more?
