Correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAIK Hector is the  only higher level
APi I would consider "complete' right now, with support for things
like fail-over.

I notice in the latest Hector build he is starting to add CQL support,
so thats what I'm sticking with.  When he has CQL support done I'll
decide if I want to use it or stick with the programmatic API.

It's always darkest just before you are eaten by a grue.
