I was wondering about this too, as I was seeing the query cache being just
as fast.  What should qualify for memcache then?  I imagine html snippets
which includes data already fetched.  However I'm already using Smarty, so I
can't just grab the html and stuff it back to memcache, can I?

What are some good places to use memcache?
