Speaking only from the point of view of a user (application
developer), I think a major plus is coming from that end. Being able
to have your standard maven project just pull in dependencies rather
than having to work around infrastructure and make special exceptions
to get cassandra client X and specific special version of thrift Y is
extremely nice.

(I'd personally love a pom.xml for cassandra itself too, if only to
avoid having to configure IDE:s manually. I may be interested in
helping out trying to maintain one, but I'm not sure I have sufficient
maven fu yet to be effective (but I'm getting there).)

Regardless, the Riptano maven repository is greatly appreciated as it
appears already.
