Or use sharedance, which is essentially memcached on disk, and is not
subject to data loss on server restart and is limited by disk space,
rather than RAM, so you're unlikely to run out of space. It's not as
fast as memcached, but it's still much quicker than a regular DB.
I use sharedance for sessions, memcached for caching.
