FS#298 - Add support for memcached
It's basically a distributed key=value service. entirely In-RAM. (What happens when it fills? LRU?)
Initially, cache things that don't chagne often -- like usernames and folder names/parents but on a random photo page load, we have to hit several times.
This isn't a big deal now, but on high-traffic sites it can make quite a difference in performance.
Adding general support for this is a bit more complicated, as it would have to sit inbetween the querys and the database, so I'd rather just add it to a few hotspots as needed.
Reason for closing: Implemented
Additional comments about closing: There's always room for improvement, but the first parts are there. The search/folder browse improvements are a much more complex problem.
