As others have commented, I think this sort of benchmarking is
premature.  On a real site, memcached is only a fraction of the total
load, so even if one client implementation is 2x faster than another,
you're just tweaking a single percentage digit in the overall

Much more important is using what you're comfortable and experienced
with.  If you know how to profile a PHP app and not a Perl one, then
use PHP.
