if you are slicing supercolumns, you always get all the subcolumns of each

if you are slicing subcolumns, then yes, but reversed will apply

no, the point is that the server actually has to change the ordering
of the results since thrift is batch-oriented, but the client can just
say "for foo in reversed(results)" and you don't have to mutate or
re-order anything.
