> Adding a way to sort UTF8 based on a standard order(collation) is very useful. Say for
example you have wide rows where you cannot use cassandra's standard indexes(secondary/primary
index). Lets say each column had a string value that was either one of alphanumeric or purely
> Now lets say I want to index these values in a materialized views so I could look up
things by range of values (range makes sense as a standard ordering over my  alpha numeric
and numeric strings i.e. "12" < "10000").
> More specifically I add these values into a CompositeType and SliceRange over them for
the index to work and I dont really care weather its a alpha or a numeric, it should be in
the order that follows collation semantics as follows:
> 1) If the string is a numeric then it should be comparable like a numeric
> 2) If its a alpha then it should be comparable like a normal string. 
> 3) If its a alhpa-numeric then a contiguos sequence of numbers in the string should be
compared as numbers like "c10" > "c2".
> 4) UTF8 type strings assumed everywhere.
