In my very modest opinion, this is still clumsy (shouldn't we add this
to CassandraDaemon in .avro too?)
I believe it would be nice to have a stanza in the configuration where
we just list implementations of a CassandraDaemon interface
(start,stop,configure,destroy), try to load and start them if
possible, report an error and continue otherwise.

This way avro, thrift, other RPC implementations _and_ other services
like this could be started/stopped if found in classpath and specified
by the user without messing with the existing code, and they could
easily go into a contrib.

also, mostly because of annoying interactions between jmx/rmi &
firewalls, gathering statistics with a cronjob that pulls data over
http may sometimes be more convenient.
