Hi Jonathan,

In my case, I'll have much more columns (thousands to millions) than keys in logs (campaign x days), so it's not an issue to retrieve all of them.

Also, if you assume that you can't retrieve values from Cassandra, just because you're using the wrong key (say your using "user/10" instead of "user:10") without the ability to list the keys, you'd have no way to find out the error.

I'm glad to see this implemented :)

More or less (but see
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-745, in 0.6).

Think of it this way: when you have a few billion keys, how useful is
it to list them?
