Eh, you don't need to disclaim your opinion that much :)

The PHP clients have, overall, been a bit rough and slow moving compared to
the Java and Python clients.  My hope is that the transition to cql3 will
it easier to maintain the drivers and clients; it just tends to be a lot of
work with PHP.

Thrift does have some issues of its own, so perhaps the custom protocol
that's replacing it will smooth out some of the issues.  Regardless, some
work on enabling persistent connections is definitely needed.  If anybody
is familiar enough with that to lend a hand, I would be glad to get some
kind of support in.
