Cross-client memcached compatibility

That sounds like a plan then. How many flags values are "free"? Maybe we could identify one specifically for some specific kind of cross platform serialization method (again I'm thinking json although not necessarily that).
My thinking is to make it easier for the clients to put together something truly cross platform out of the box so to speak and not to rely on the user of the library to setup the correct hooks. Unless I minsunderstood what you said :)

I think it would make sense to flag for serialization method -- rather
than trying to pick or define a single serialization method for all
clients, the clients simply flag with the method they used.
Most languages have libraries available to interpret most other
languages' native serialization, so I think we can leverage that via
callbacks and flexible data type flags.
