(going back to the original topic...)

I just wanted to point out that there is in my opinion an important
use case that is doable in Thrift but not in CQL, which is to fetch
several CQL rows from the same partition in a single isolated read. We
lose the benefit of partition-level isolation if there is no way to
read rows together.
Of course we can perform range queries and even scan over
multi-dimensional clustering keys with CASSANDRA-4851, but we still
can't fetch rows using a set of clustering keys.

I couldn't find a JIRA for this feature, does anyone know if there is one?


For what it's worth, +1 on freezing Thrift.
