ketama is a consistent hashing library we use in our memcached clients, 
mentioned on this list a few months ago. I've updated our public svn:

* libketama changed to BSD license
* minor tweaks/optimisations
* 'make test' has a basic regression test and hashing distribution check
* added python_ketama (from folks)


There is also a (slightly outdated) patch in the patches dir to replace md5 
hashing with FNV-1a, which is ~60% faster, which i am yet to merge properly.
