I'd rather just focus on any more shift to pymemcache and let bygones be 

Afaik once https://github.com/pinterest/pymemcache/commit/63a2d96048202 
(Introduced HashClient that uses consistent hasing... and Python 3 
Support ... commit) is released (the hashing feature that just landed 
IMHO makes that client a production-ready fully featured client finally) 
then there really is no need to have python-memcached client anymore.
