It does seem to have features that memcached doesn't.  For example:

* saving the cache to disk (and, I assume, loading it on startup)
* undelete of entries scheduled for deletion on modify
* get if: modified < x, data_hash != x (otherwise not found)
* async requests

It seems to lack:

* append/prepend insertion-into-cache commands
* increment/decrement modifies 64-bit counters in the cache
* UDP protocol support
