I initially found the design of the cache backend classes confusing, especially with respect to references to Memcached in
django.core.cache.backends.base.BaseCache.validate_key() . I found that this was added a year ago in ticket #6447, so I figured there was a good reason but it was not explained anywhere I could find.
I discussed this with a couple core developers and hopefully the attached patch will be suitable.
