Mike, you can submit bugs and questions directly to me, here, or through (the CPAN bug tracker).  It's a good idea to test an
operation from the CLI that comes with Cassandra to make sure the
problem is not with the Net::Cassandra::Easy module.

Also, if you set $Net::Cassandra::Easy::DEBUG to 1, you'll see the
actual Thrift objects that get constructed.  In this case (N::C::Easy
0.08) I was constructing a super_column parameter which was wrong.

It's a bug in N::C::Easy.  I fixed it in 0.09 so it will work properly with:

$rc = $c->mutate([$key], family => 'Standard1', deletions => { standard => 1,
byname => ['column1', 'column2']});

AFAIK I can't specify "delete all columns in a non-super CF" using
Deletions so "byname" is required (I end up filling the column_names
field in the predicate).  OTOH I can just delete a SuperColumn so the
above is possible in a super CF.

The docs and tests were updated as well.  Let me know if you have
problems; it worked for me.  In the next release I'll update
to work with non-super CFs as well.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
