memcache doesn't help matters. (wrt to famd anyway.)

We disabled famd on our Debian workstations and almost all AFS related 
problems went away nearly immediately.

I have not had any users complain about missing features due to lack of 
famd support.  (Doesn't mean it didn't happen, just that no one told me 
about it.)
