I made a first run through refactoring the feed code, and throwing memcache in.
I need to setup a php test machine to test and verify though... So it
might take a little while for me to make that happen.
That is, unless someone has an aur instance running that is willing to
test my patches (and setup memcached and the requisite php module).
