The memcached dependency is now removed. It stores tickets in files in 
the directory specified at the top of the script.

There's no expiry on the tickets anymore, so your ticketdir will 
probably end up with some stale tickets after a while that need cleaning 
out. It could still limit ticket redemption time by looking at the file 
modtime, but I'll leave that as an exercise to the reader.

I left all of the Memcached code in there commented out in case anyone 
wants to use it.

Depends on:

All of the stuff needed should either be pure perl or come with perl, so 
it shouldn't be a major deal to get this running on a limited hosting 
account. If you need to install any modules yourself, just plonk the 
modules in the directory with it.
