pymemcache is not drop-in replacement for python-memcached, but the cost to
wire it up to dogpile is effectively a 1-time cost and would need to be
done in general for the way keystone / keystonemiddleware works. It isn't
unreasonable to go with this option.

pymemcache used to have glaring holes in capabilities, but it seems it is
mostly up to par now.
