it would seem to me that since memcached is not considered a
'reliable' storage mechanism you should handle the transactions as
close to the data source as possible, and use normal cache
resetting/recaching methods after a successful update of the backend

i don't think anyone on this list would suggest using memcached as a
database or source of data. it is purely for distributed caching of
data to offload databases and such.
