If you could implement memcache's protocol (binary or text), I think it 
will boost your project incredibly.

I mean, you could take advantage of the current bindings available in 
almost every language, all the improvements made on the client side 
(consistent hashing, compression, php session handler, replication, 
etc.) would be automatically available for your project.

Also, I don't think this is a replacement for MogileFS (just to name one 
distributed FS project), but it could be a nice improvement for tons of 
sites that right now are using memcached for the session storage. People 
wouldn't have to change their code (or compile a new module on each web 
server), they'd only make another memcached client connection. And let's 
not forget there will be a simple and nice answer to a question that has 
been asked so many times ;o)

Anyways, thank you very much for your work, and congratulations.
