memcached module opens one connection per request

While testing out the nginx memcached module, I noticed that it opens  
a new connection to memcached for each request. Is there a way to make
nginx reuse a single connection? This makes load testing complicated  
since the nginx machine quickly runs out of ephemeral ports.
