> The CqlStorage class gets the Pig data type for values from the AbstractCassandraStorage
class, in the getPigType method.  If it isn't a known data type, it makes the value into a
ByteArray.  Currently there aren't any cases there for lists, maps, and sets.

> See this describe output from the grunt shell:
> {code}
> grunt> describe listdata ;                                        
> listdata: {id: (name: chararray,value: int),alist: (name: chararray,value: bytearray),amap:
(name: chararray,value: bytearray),aset: (name: chararray,value: bytearray)}
> {code}
> where the cql data structures had this schema:
> {code}
> CREATE TABLE alltypes (
>   id int PRIMARY KEY,
>   alist list<text>,
>   amap map<text, text>,
>   aset set<text>
> {code}
> It turns out that if you cast the map in grunt to a pig map, then it sort of works, but
I don't think we should probably use a pig map.  Lists don't appear to work at all, as there
is no Pig analogue.  I *think* you could probably just do a UDF to cast these things, but
we already have all of the type information, so we just need to change them to tuples or bags
or whatever.
