> Pretty much every script in bin has the same first 30 lines or so. We need to remove
some of the duplication here.  This could be accomplished by consolidating some commands into
a single script or adding an initializer script they all call.
> I think I prefer consolidating at least some of the commands. For example the *tool commands
could easily be one cassandra-tool command.  It may even be possible to incorporate most of
them into the cassandra script and have different commands for starting a node or using the
