I think one of the intentions/benefits of the CQL foundation with in-tree drivers is that
a lot of the heavy lifting that clients previously had to implement is taken care of.  This
way, the the only thing for the higher level client to do is to make things idiomatic, and
sometimes only minimally, depending on how sophisticated the drivers are.  Perhaps the higher
level client would just mold the driver to a particular language specific framework like to
fit in with spring, or rails, or sql alchemy, or django, or an orm or whatever.
