Hi Brian,

Did you test on OS X?

I tried replicating your results and on (intel) OS X the  
Cache::Memcached client didn't get the responses from the server some  
of the time.  In your test module that made it refetch it via http  
(slow!) ~30-40% of the time.

I didn't look very closely, but it seems like there's something wrong  
with either memcached (as installed by the ports system) or  
Cache::Memcached on OS X.   (If I increased the timeouts in  
Cache::Memcached it got the response back, but was of course still  
insanely slow).

On $random_linux_system a simple single threaded test gave me ~270  
gets per second for the 212kb data block (before compression) and  
~3500 gets per second for a 50 byte data block.

   - ask
