In the 1.10 version of the Using cache sessions documentation, it warns the user that, "You should only use cache-based sessions if you’re using the Memcached cache backend."

From what I understand, other cache backends like Redis work as well as Memcached for this use case. Assuming my understanding is correct, the documentation should be updated to reflect this.

If I'm incorrect, perhaps add a note about why Redis is not a viable candidate.

Django doesn't ship a Redis cache backend so the warning is merely limited to the cache backends shipped with Django. Clearly, we cannot assess the entire possibility of third-party cache backends. Do you feel this needs clarification?
