The prototype is in the tgz file, in the http directory listed above.

A kind person on Freenode pointed me to this ticket:

I followed it & hand-applied the suggested patch, so the application
gets as far as:

$VAR1 = bless( {
                 'code' => 1,
                 'message' => 'Invalid method name: \'set_keyspace\''
               }, 'TApplicationException' );

This is using Net-Cassandra-Easy-0.14-7Jcufu and Cassandra 0.6.1.

Maybe I can use an earlier Cassandra & make this work? :)

The perl prototype was just to get a general feel for the API &
implement something q&d that might actually work for the time being.

( Or so I like to tell myself. :P )
