That kind of defeats the purpose all-around, though, doesn't it?  I 
mean, I'd have to install a script that puts shell access to my server 
on the web, which sounds just a tad insecure.  But I can't do this on 
the live shared server because that could upset others.

In any case...

I don't want to know if performance is increased, I want to know if the 
new caching is being used.  Does memcache failover to disk-based 
caching?  If so, how do I determine if the memcache cache replacement is 
working or the built-in stuff?
