> This issue has come up numerous times, and we've dealt with a lot of pain because of
it: let's get it knocked out.
> Keys being Java Strings can make it painful to use Cassandra from other languages, encoding
binary data like integers as Strings is very inefficient, and there is a disconnect between
our column data types and the plain String treatment we give row keys.
> The key design decision that needs discussion is: Should we apply the column AbstractTypes
to row keys? If so, how do Partitioners change?
