Tip: Pointing pylibmc at a unix domain socket

This is a quick tip that will hopefully save someone else a few minutesat least. If you’re using Django 1.3, using pylibmc and want to point at a local unix domain socket for memcached, this is what your CACHES setting will look like:

        'default': {
                'BACKEND': 'django.core.cache.backends.memcached.PyLibMCCache',
                'LOCATION': '/tmp/memcached.sock',

This also assumes that you have configured memcached to use a unix domain socket (with the -s option in memcached.conf).
