Tugela actually replaces the in-memory store with BDB
Ideally i would just want a transactional BDB as a backing store, and
still have the usual memcached

One extra positive that Tugela brings is that you have control on the
expiry logic. But almost always, LRU works best. So thats not too much
of a concern for me.

Did someone work on just a bdb based backend for memcached?
