This module implements the bytecode cache system Jinja is optionally
using. This is useful if you have very complex template situations and
the compiliation of all those templates slow down your application too
Situations where this is useful are often forking web applications that
are initialized on the first request.

class MemcachedBytecodeCache(BytecodeCache):
"""This class implements a bytecode cache that uses a memcache cache for
storing the information. It does not enforce a specific memcache library
(tummy's memcache or cmemcache) but will accept any class that provides
the minimal interface required.
Libraries compatible with this class:
- `werkzeug <>`_.contrib.cache
- `python-memcached <>`_
- `cmemcache <>`_
(Unfortunately the django cache interface is not compatible because it
does not support storing binary data, only unicode. You can however pass
the underlying cache client to the bytecode cache which is available
as `django.core.cache.cache._client`.)
The minimal interface for the client passed to the constructor is this:
.. class:: MinimalClientInterface
.. method:: set(key, value[, timeout])
Stores the bytecode in the cache. `value` is a string and
`timeout` the timeout of the key. If timeout is not provided
a default timeout or no timeout should be assumed, if it's
provided it's an integer with the number of seconds the cache
item should exist.
.. method:: get(key)
Returns the value for the cache key. If the item does not
exist in the cache the return value must be `None`.
The other arguments to the constructor are the prefix for all keys that
is added before the actual cache key and the timeout for the bytecode in
the cache system. We recommend a high (or no) timeout.
This bytecode cache does not support clearing of used items in the cache.
The clear method is a no-operation function.
