I would have thought that if Y goes down, the client goes to the
database(s).  At least that's what I'm planning.  If the client can't
connect it will go directly to the source.  I mean, that's what the client
would have to do anyway if it could connect to the sever but the server
didn't have the data cached.

I'm a new user, and I love the idea of memcached but I don't think it was
designed to be reliable.  It's not the Google filesystem.  That's cool, as
long as I don't architect my system as though it were.
