Subject Re: Do we have any restrictions on the number of column families in a keyspace?

There were never any restrictions other than common sense. 

The more you make, even under 0.8, the more frequently you have to flush to disk. 0.8 automates
the memory management, which used to involve random guesses, and basically makes it's usable.

So I'm just saying there is a down side. If you create CF's like you would create tables in
a RDBMS you will probably have some unhappy days ahead.
