> CQL syntax is inconsistent: it's "drop table X" but "truncate X". It used to trip me
up all the time until I wrapped my brain around this inconsistency and it still triggers a
tiny bout of OCD every time I type it.  I realize it's too late to change it,  but why not
have both? "truncate table X" is also consistent with the syntax in SQL.
