yeah i had a question about this as well - originally john's
php-mcache was touted as the best from what i read. pecl's had some
obvious shortcomings. now it seems (on this list) that most folks are
using pecl, and pecl has been updated a lot more since then.

i'm wondering if anyone has a feature comparison, or a way to look at
john's reasons why his is better and answer in turn with pecl's
response for each now?? it'd be great to use pecl now.
