Well, think in long run, assuming your workers store hundreds of
thousands of objects in worker cache. How will Ruby take that? I bet,
half the time will be spent in trying to garbage collect the shit. So,
if you are planning to cache results at all, memcache is certainly far
better solution. Of course, you can keep using inbuilt cache, but it
will scale only so such.
