Woah.  I hope I'm misunderstanding the data or it's crazy slow.  It  
looks like the data is for just a hundred bytes of data?  JSON::XS can  
encode or decode hundreds of thousands of short JSON strings a second.

Of course memcached itself shouldn't care; but client authors could  
standardize on how to store data so it'll be easier to say cache  
something in Perl and read it from Ruby.
