If anyone, including you, is interested, I could put together a patch to
show how Cassandra would respond to REST HTTP queries with JSON-encoded
data.  Based on the feedback so far it seems like it wouldn't make it in
the core, though.

I could provide a way to plug in your own API to Cassandra so anyone
could write a full API using PB, HTTP, or whatever protocol they like.
Underneath it could invoke the Thrift interface methods locally and
relay their results out.  This would be really nice but again I doubt it
would be included in the core.
