The documentation at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.1/topics/cache/ states "The fastest available option is a module called cmemcache, available at http://gijsbert.org/cmemcache/ ."
However, http://code.google.com/p/memcached/wiki/Clients#Python says "cmemcache (Note: this library is deprecated, old, buggy, you should not use it). ".
gisbert.org itself says "cmemcache is retired as of 2009/12/21 due to lack of maintenance and more viable replacements. You can find the alternatives on the memcached website." and "I have tried python-libmemcached briefly in my cache compare benchmark and it scores a little bit better than cmemcache on most operations".
So, I suggest this reference is updated for these reasons.
