Thanks Brian, I will take a look at that tar file.

One thing that occurred to me might make for a good test:  Your second 
test was pulling a 212K file from memcached - what if you have another 
test that uses the exact same Perl/Python/PHP code, except that it pulls 
the 212K file from disk, or generates a 212K blob of data in memory? 
Comparing those thw tests might help tease out how much of the difference 
between the languages is due to their respective memcached clients.
