FYI, memcached 1.56 was released a few days ago, and I have uploaded it
to Sid. This version is the first one with upstream support for Python3.
python3-memcache currently in Jessie is simply not usable. I'd suggest
removing anything that depends on it, or otherwise upgrade memcache to
the Sid version (though the later may not be accepted by the release team).
