I already started work on it in Net::Cassandra::Easy but needed to keep
things going with our current setup and jconsole wasn't working.

I agree loadSchemaFromXML should go away, although IMHO there should be
an easy way through something bundled with Cassandra (nodetool or
cassandra-cli) to dump, wipe, and restore the schema even though the
general schema support is punted to external tools.  Are you against
providing even that rudimentary support?
