libmemcached can stream deletes when running asynchronously, so it is  
possible to test the performance.

James Day and Domas have been complaining about Wikipedia having  
issues with Memcached being too chatty. I suspect the real advantage  
in multi-delete will be that it saves in having to process, or drop,  
multiple responses to deletes.

Adding multi-delete sounds like a good idea.

You can't grep a dead tree.
