You propably want to be careful with that - as then adding non-local
host's -- and then later using that as a template elsewhere gets you
inconsistent hashing. I.e. best perhaps to use absolutely IPs from the
same CIDR across the board.
Given how many times this has bitten me - you'd almost wonder if it
makes sense to allow the config to drive the hashing by some UUID
which is configured or persistently (re-)gurgitated by memcached on
