BTW, "set $memcached_key blah blah" is not a ngx_memcached magic, but
rather ngx_rewrite. I think this feature is general enough to be
included in a separate module. Also, we could get URI escaping and
unescaping routines for *any* nginx variables like this:

    set_uri_unescape $memcached_key $arg_my_key;

as well as

    set_sha1 $memcached_key $request_uri

    set_md5 $memcached_key $request_uri

in your situation ;)

Well, a module named ngx_escape or ngx_var_filter now comes into my mind ;)
