And I would counter that installing an RPM / other binary package or
building it from source and then running on Linux

/sbin/service memcached start

is pretty trivial.  We have our memcached instances set to 60 MB (the
default) and have never hit that limit.

For an embedded platform running Nagios using memcached would be
overkill and not the right choice.
