Way cool!

I wonder whether Cache::Memcached::Managed

works with your version.  It has quite an extensive test-suite.

I won't be getting back to using memcached for at least another 3 
weeks, unfortunately, so I don't have the time right now to do this 
myself.  But rest assured we will give this a chance of getting used 
in production!
