You're not going to control the entire full list of dependency of things we use in OpenStack, so this kind of situation is going to arise anyway. > The problem I have with this is it doesn't appear that RHEL/Fedora package > pymemcache (they do package python-memcached).

When we started tooz from scratch a year ago, there was no point starting to use a non-Python 3 compatible and "crappy" memcache client. pymemcache shouldn't be a problem to package anyway. :) -- Julien Danjou /* Free Software hacker http://julien.danjou.info */
