Well, we have moved to MySQL Cluster for the bulk of the data that was 
giving us this problem.  We had major issues when anything on the front 
page was not there.  As for the cluster data, its just there or its not. 
  We don't use the pulled cache method for that anymore.

Mostly we use memcached now for proxy caching content and for caching 
web services data from 3rd parties.
