Did you simulate 400 people doing that at one time?  I mean all at the 
same time?  Unless you did, you did not do a real test.  if you only 
have one query ever running at one time, you don't need memcached.

According to my tests (YMMV), the PHP extension is the fastest between 
PHP, Perl and Python.
