Hi nginx-devel,

I'm new to the world of nginx development. I'm looking at patching nginx to
allow for configurable session caching via memcached. Goal is to be able to
session cache across boxes within a cluster when there's no guarantee that
a client will connect to the same box each time.

I've seen this previous work from mpalmer:

However it is 3 years old. I'm going to look at patching it onto the
mainline and auditing the code to see if it still makes sense.

A few questions.
1) Is there anything I should look out for / be careful of?
2) Is there any desire for this feature on mainline? If so, any suggestions
on how to request feedback. Via patches to the mailing list?
