Add an AbstractType anytype which stores meta data on a per column basis
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CASSANDRA-3281
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-3281
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Edward Capriolo
            Priority: Minor


A pet project of mine is an AbstractType for Cassandra that stores metadata of the type in
the column. https://github.com/edwardcapriolo/Cassandra-AnyType

I described my use case any my design decisions here. https://github.com/edwardcapriolo/Cassandra-AnyType/blob/master/README
. The biggest cases were needing to support null and '' as keys, column names, and column
values, however I also think the technique used to serialize Java Objects as JSON but compare
as a Java object is novel. 

Side node: (The AbstractType interface has changed multiple times between 0.6.X, 0.7.X, and
1.0.0-beta. I hope it stabilizes! ) 

If people would like AnyType (or parts of it ) incorporated into Cassandra that would be great.
I am willing to tweak change it based on other peoples ideas.
