It would be a nice performance enhancement if libmemcached, php-pecl-memcached and igbinay are supported by default.

doesn't the standard memcache library for php use libmemcached in the background ?

Since XF uses Zend, pretty much we are covered in the backend, I just configured Memcached actually, more details here:

I see that some sort of DataStore makes used of this cache mechanism. I have not yet explored what else is cached. Newsfeed is a good candidate for it IMO (if it is not already)

libmemcached is needed only by php-pecl-memcached, not php-pecl-memcache.
It requires also to run latest versions of autoconf, automake, m4, etc. libs in order to compile it properly.

For example, igbinary will make PHP serialization a dream come true, since it transforms each serialized object into a cacheable binary, that is also compacted by default.
