(BTW, I use Eclipse for Java development, is there a way to run the Ant
tasks automatically to rebuild the generated source if necessary?  It
works fine otherwise.)

I see all the methods implementing the server interface in
org.apache.cassandra.service.CassandraServer.  Is that where the
authentication should happen?  Should I use JAAS (LDAP+PAM+other
backends) or is there something else preferred?  

Does libThrift allow persistent state per client somehow or do I have to
implement my own security tokens?  I don't see a way to track the client
in any of the Cassandra services currently so I suspect libThrift is
stateless on its own.
