Cassandra, not for hosting millions of users concurrently.

And you're right: those are helloworld benchmarks.

I was concerned a few days ago about the sync/async issue, browsing
over examples on Telephus, Twissandra, Lazyboy, Pycassa... then I
thought that Lazyboy is largely being used in production AFAIK, so

it will) be independent, in case we want to make this changes in the
