>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Tools
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.6
>         Environment: Amazon Linux w/ Apache Cassandra 1.0.6

> I use the cassandra-cli to create schemas, update schemas, and make other calls to interrogate
keyspaces and columns. I load pre-written statements from files using the -f option, example:
"bin/cassandra-cli -host localhost -port 9160 -f mystatements.txt". It would be useful if
I could comment my statement files with comments similar to how you can comment script and
C++/Java code.
> Example contents of "mystatements.txt" file:
> update column family users                    // This is my column which holds all my
user information
>         with comparator = UTF8Type            // My column names are all strings so I
will use UTF8Type
>         and key_validation_class = UTF8Type   // My row key values are also UTF8Type
>         and default_validation_class = UTF8Type // Column values will be UTF8Type
>         and column_metadata = [
>                 {column_name: username, validation_class: UTF8Type}, // This column stores
the login name of the user
>                 {column_name: realname, validation_class: UTF8Type}];// This column stores
the real world name of user
