I'm not sure about whether it's wise. But to work around Cassandra's
limitations on bytes-per-key, you would probably have to split up large
objects into several smaller ones and store them against different keys.

This may be reasonable depending on what your application does. It will also
work (hopefully) in your favour to split the load over multiple nodes.
