How to serve images from memory?

mod_mem_cache is an option, as is mod_file_cache

file cache loads a static list of files into memory when you start, 
while mem_cache caches the requests on demand (more like squid).

I've heard several people mumble that they want to write a 
mod_memcache_cache (which is how the apr_memcache API started )
which would use memcache as a backend, but no one has been itchy enough 
to write it/open source the implementation.
