Subject Re: Is there a penalty to a SuperColumn?

If there is ambiguity, something else is wrong and you should probably
stick with a regular CF.  If you are indexing a regular CF with an SCF
you are probably doing it right.  If you are trying to model some
hierarchical structure from your problem domain, I really recommend
just using composite keys and OPP.
