    Summary: Reduce memory, disk space, and cpu usage with a column name/id map  (was: Reduce
memory (and disk) space requirements with a column name/id map)

Edited title to reflect the obvious.

> We spend a lot of memory on column names, both transiently (during reads) and more permanently
(in the row cache).  Compression mitigates this on disk but not on the heap.
> The overhead is significant for typical small column values, e.g., ints.
> Even though we intern once we get to the memtable, this affects writes too via very high
allocation rates in the young generation, hence more GC activity.
> Now that CQL3 provides us some guarantees that column names must be defined before they
are inserted, we could create a map of (say) 32-bit int column id, to names, and use that
internally right up until we return a resultset to the client.
