Awesome ideas, both: possibly embedding libmemcached for the internal
test suite (so we can write it in C and stop waxing poetic on it), and
fiddling the buildbots into running all of these wacky test suites.

My concern with using a library for the internal `make test` suite is
that it becomes difficult to distinct between a library bug and a server
bug, since the tests aren't minimalist.
