For example, lets say I have a big beefy MySQL serving machine with
oodles of spare memory. I also have 4 webservers. I want to use a
centralised memcache installation on the DB server, but I'm going to
access the objects from the webservers.

In this case, the DB server needs only memcached and the webservers
need only php-pecl-memcache - neither is a direct dependency on the
