Subject Re: CQL3 vs Thrift

In my bias opinion something else should replace CQL and it needs a proper rewrite on the
sever side.

I've studied the code and having written query parsers and planners, what is there today isn't
going to work long term.

Whatever replaced both thrift and CQL needs to provide 100% of the features that exist today
