That could be very cool. I read up on consistent hashes for load
balancing crawlers. The promise of repartitioning the hash space at run
time almost seems like a miracle. Memcached is probably the perfect place
for implementing consistent hashes since the client and server is under
the sysadmin's control, unlike the web.
