Summary: MW memcached driver should fall back to PHP's built-in
                    memcached module if available

Presumably, PHP's memcached module (which caused the memcached class to be
renamed to MWMemcached because of a naming conflict) is faster than our PHP
implementation and supports the same actions.

We should write a wrapper class around the built-in memcached class that
coexists with MWMemcached and have wfGetCache() choose which one to instantiate
based on class_exists('memcached') .

In the longer term, we should rewrite this horrible infrastructure and have all
cache interface classes inherit one abstract class, and move wfGetCache()'s
functionality to a static method in that abstract class. We could also have
each cache interface class implement isAvailable() so we can move the
class_exists('memcached') check to a more logical place.
