The Memcache module isn't hard to use at all, the tricky bits are  
getting memcached installed. If you follow the README/INSTALL files  
it's pretty straight forward. I'm running an older version of it on a  
site which the administrative bits aren't working so I'm not sure if  
the latest has that enabled.
