I don't think requiring memcached would be a bad idea; maybe make it
just decoupled enough that people could still develop locally without
it being necessary (fall back to no caching at all). I already added
some caching changes [1] a while back that uses APC if it is
available, but it would be trivial to just migrate everything to
memcached and put in a generic caching layer/API.

Now let me know when you want to move the DB off of MySQL, and we'll talk. :P
