I'm out here.  Sorry, wasn't following this thread for awhile now because
I thought it was a different list.  Kinda swamped lately.

BUT ... we have a bunch of memcached changes that we've been wanting, and
proper namespaces is one of them.  Bigger is the vbucket work (which
avva's already done, but we need a tracker), and a binary protocol, at
least for gets.

We'd be happy to take patches upstream, assuming there's a bit of planning
first in the public, and not a huge code dump.
