I'm sure if Cassandra maintainers heard from other people besides myself
in favor of multiple APIs they would be more likely to listen.  I've

FWIW I would again contribute in that direction if there was a chance of
acceptance and I am concerned about the operational risks of the Thrift
API and with the state of the Avro API.
