Keepalive to memcached backends works perfectly with
Making it work with http & fastcgi backends requires some
non-trivial modifications in proxy/fastcgi/upstream modules and
nginx core. I have some work-in-progress for this, but it's not

Memcached *is* standard backend, not a "third party module". And
it shares most of it's code with http backends (proxy_pass) and
fastcgi backends (fastcgi_pass).
