Update memcached link in

I noticed that in there is a link to very old Django 1.1 docs: docs DOT djangoproject DOT com/en/1.1/topics/cache/

In those docs the recommended python bindings module is cmemcache, which has been retired since 2009 and no longer recommended.

It would be a good idea to upgrade that to 1.5 to keep people from getting confused.

EDIT: Actually, the example is completely incorrect anyway on newer versions of Django. You'll need to configure it like this in newer versions: CACHES = { 'default': { 'BACKEND': 'django.core.cache.backends.memcached.MemcachedCache', 'LOCATION': '', } }

Yes it's outdated - try pymemcache, it's a pure python implementation and may be easier to work with. It's slower, but you probably won't notice that. Also you might use redis cache.
