To be fair most modern Linux distributions are distributed with Python
and even Mac OS X comes with 2.3 installed by default.   The
installation of the Python memcached client API is no more egregious
than installing the PHP memcached requirement for the Digg graphs.

pecl install memcached
python ./ install

If you really are interested in checking them out, don't let the API
requirement scare you away.   There isn't really any need to "get it
working" as it just works.  After extracting the tarball, it's really
only a one liner with a 30 second wait.
