Using Smarty should not hinder any memcached implementation of your  
site.  You still have full control of retreiving/storing data via  
cache or the database before anything gets passed to Smarty.

In your foo.php file, you must set up includes, do your scripting,  
blah blah blah, and pass your data to the template engine via methods  
like Smarty::assign().  Just make sure you do your caching before you  
assign anything to be displayed via the template engine.
