Change 187074 had a related patch set uploaded (by Aaron Schulz):
Added WANObjectCache class and made redis/memcached subclasses


bd808 set Security to None.

See and for the prototype daemon.

I'm not terribly wedded to any language/tool, but this only need to be able to keep up with write-level traffic (not memcached GET level volume), and I'd like to keep it simple.

python-memcached-relay -> might be worth renaming that, since it also covers redis and plans to do varnish/squid too. I'm happy to review it as soon as you have it up on gerrit.

Any proposed gerrit repo names?
