I believe Mark from facebook was starting on a server implementation --
My plan was to sync() with his values once they are published -- Please
do not use the ones in apr_memcached yet, I was just making shit up(tm).

And.. Whatever the values are, they should just be documented in the
binary protocol text file....

This of course assumes no one has any major design issues with the
general style of the binary protocol....
