Correcting myself in the interest of providing correct information,
this doesn't seem to be true - at least not always. I don't know
whether it is a matter of different kernel versions or something else.
I have definitely seen Python processes accessing CDB:s having a high
resident amount and seen it creep down again as it is replaced by
other data being paged in, but some Cassandras now running on 2.6.32
don't exhibit this effect.
