 describe_schema_versions on the thrift API (SystemManager.describe_schema_versions() on pycassa)
is what you are after.

Call it before hand to know what's what, and then call until all nodes converge on the new

 The one issue I had though was I needed to sleep after keyspace creation and column family
creation.  BEFORE that I researched if could increase the write consistency from QUORUM to
ALL instead of sleeping WHERE in this special case ALL meant the whole cluster ;) not just
the replicated nodes as when you write data.  Looking at the thrift api, this looks like it
does not exist though or am I mistaken?

the new keyspace and another for the new column family, please do let me know.  (I am hoping
that doesn't block data write/read operations of the cluster in general of course).

of a data upload process and so for now I need to sleep BUT I don't know how long I have to
sleep for :( :( :( so a blocking method call would be much better.
