I'm assuming your question was tangential and not in the sense that
"fixing the transport will fix the reported issue."

There's for a
custom non-Thrift protocol.  Most of the Cassandra developers feel
HTTP+JSON or XML is inadequate for this purpose; while this may be true
for some cases, it's also true that for many of the end users HTTP+JSON
or XML is easier to support and use from a client.  So I hope eventually
HTTP as the transport and JSON or XML as the serialization format are at
least an option.
