> Cassandra currently lacks support for 4byte fixed size integer data type. 
> Java API Hector and C libcassandra likes to serialize integers as 4 bytes in network
order. Problem is that you cant use cassandra-cli to manipulate stored rows. Compatibility
with other applications using api following cassandra integer encoding standard is problematic
too.
> Because adding new datatype/validator is fairly simple I recommend to add int4 data type.
Compatibility with hector is important because it is most used Java cassandra api and lot
of applications are using it.
> This problem was discussed several times already 
> http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.hector.user/2125
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-2585
> It would be nice to have compatibility with cassandra-cli and other applications without
rewriting hector apps.
