is the "q" something like "get quietly" ?

Do any of these return a "cache miss" message, or does it only return
if there is an error? If I read this right, "get" and "getk" both
return a miss...

I could see client libraries benefitting from a "miss" message (for
all I know it could already be in the protocol though and my client
just doesn't do anything with it.)
