Keys larger that 250

My 'natural' keys are generally 400 to 900 bytes.
I'd like to avoid having to pay the price of either
a) creating a good digest (MD5) each time, or
b) using a poor digest and including a copy of the full key inside the
value (so it can be checked when fetched).
I was surprised that memcached doesn't offer a command like option to
support larger key sizes.
The image of the binary protocol shows "keylen 3". Does than mean
three bytes will be used to store the keylen in the binary protocol?
