Originally reported by @jaysonsantos in travis-ci/travis-ci#434:

As I talked with @michaelklishin on IRC it would be great if memached is build with sasl support.
We have talked about how ugly is build it with sources and maybe apt-get source should be a better approach as it is the same package as in production.
Here is a simple how to http://code.google.com/p/memcached/wiki/SASLHowto
Thank you for this great project

Introduce memcached::ppa. Kudos to @mezzle.
The PPA provides our own package with SASL enabled. References #31.

Disable SASL for Memcached, references #31
It was a good idea in theory but does not work out
well in practice. Many Memcached clients do not
support SASL or it is not assumed to be enabled
by default. In addition, most developers do not
even realize Memcached has authentication support
at all. In the end, lots of test suites fail for
no obvious reason.

In addition, authentication is not optional, so
we have to either double down or go back to
running Memcached w/o authentication. The latter
is the only realistic option.
