Pymemcached would be my choice instead of forking this project. However, pymemcached is missing multiple server connections and key/hash ring capabilities (afaik there is a pull request/active development to cover those gaps).

I highly recommend contributing to the ldap3 project instead of continuing the python-ldap work. Ldap3 is (imho) a much better design and really (if anything) simply lacks a compatibility layer. 

Keystone will be moving to ldap3 (regardless of the compat module) either this cycle or next.
