Great! I've been meaning to write a memcache interface for some time,
but have a dearth of round to-its.
A one gen_server/tcp_socket approach sounds pretty reasonable - if
there's a benefit to be had from a pool of these connections you could
add a simple one for one supervisor to manage a collection of them.
For publishing code a subversion repository at code.google.com or a git
repository anywhere would be really useful.
