I'm just getting started looking at Cassandra, and wondering if is a
possible fit around the shape of the problem we think we need to solve. :)

In a nutshell, what I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to use
Cassandra as front-end kind of session database, with commits eventually
(offline?) trickled serially into a legacy SQL database.

Could we achieve this kind of thing using the existing API, or would be
need to integrate somewhat more deeply?

One thing I wouldn't want to do, is limit the kind of range queries we
could do, in order to make this kind of thing work.

Kind of vague, but any suggestions much appreciated.
